Southern Löhmühleninsel is an island surrounded by canals that was once on the border that separated East and West Berlin. The island is now a popular destination for play and recreation thanks to its connection with pedestrian and cycling paths, as well as its “play strip”, a linear series of play areas spanning the length of the long, narrow island.
The “island square” is located at the entrance to the island. A sea of small rubber-coated asphalt mounds are covered in concentric lines like a topographic map. This seemingly simple play area has a wide range of play value for running, rolling, sitting, cycling, skateboarding, and more, and is used by kids and people of all ages and abilities.
The play strip contains many other features, including basketball courts, seesaws, sand pits, viewing platforms, and more.
