The city's biggest park is in the St. Johann district. Here, kids take to the swings and slides while their parents practice yoga on the lawn or jog a lap of the park.

Another popular attraction is the paddling pool that doubles up as a skate park outside the bathing season. Around 180 different species of trees – including magnolia, oak and maple – turn the 10-hectare grounds into an oasis in the city.
