Westpark Dortmund: power jogging, dancing or just chill
The dappled sunshine plays on your face. The birds are singing in the trees. The sound of laughter drifts across the grass. You lie back on a rug in Dortmund’s Westpark and close your eyes. It’s no wonder that it is so peaceful here, as Westpark is a former cemetery. And the park still features grave stones and monuments.
But today the park is also full off life, it is a popular meeting place for mainly young people, students and families. They barbecue at the special barbecue areas, spread out their picnics and play football or throw frisbees. The special Finnenbahn track is also a great place for jogging. Dogs also have their fun here at the designated dogs’ playground. A few metres further on, people are enjoying a quiet meal in the adjacent restaurant or drinking a cool beer in the beer garden after work.
