A “generation park” is to be created in the center of windheim before the end of the year will be created. The field has been used as a school sports facility for 45 years. Until the completion of the tsv sports complex in the early 1990s, fubball was played on part of the site.
As mayor thomas loffler explained, the pitch is currently in a poor condition. If you enter this flat area, you will notice two goals, basketball hoops and an overgrown running track. That should change, according to the mayor.
The school sports facility, which is getting on in years, is to be rebuilt. A meeting place for the general public and for all generations is to be created. Hence the name “generation park.

The children should have a place to let off steam and play. Naturally, the "generationen-park" will be can also be used by kindergarten as well as by athletes and schoolchildren. In addition, the "generationen-park" will will be made available for school sports.

In the course of the creation of the "generation park the approximately 25 meter long area of the river olschnitz, which runs through a canal in the southern part of the school sports facility, will be renaturalized and cleared. "The square gets more space and becomes more experienceable."
