Christine Busta Park
Christine-Busta-Park is a small green oasis in Meidling, Vienna’s 12th district. Its 7,000 square meters have been redesigned in 2010 and adapted especially to the needs of the elderly (trees and shady benches) and kids (a playground). The park is one example of many small green areas in Vienna that have been created to loosen up dense neighbourhoods and introduce a minimum of freely accessible recreational space to these areas. It is for sure no tourist attraction, but the Theresienbad swimming pool just next door might be attractive on a hot summer day. If you ever find yourself in the position to look for Christine-Busta-Park make sure to ask for Füchselhofpark, which is the park’s more common name among locals. And who is Christine Busta? She was a 20th century lyricist and author of well-known children’s books.
