Kurpark Oberlaa

The Kurpark Oberlaa is located in the 10th district of Vienna (Favoriten), on the southeast slope of the Laaer Berg and emerged from the area of the Vienna International Garden Show in 1974. The park occupies an area of about 608,600m2 and is characterized by a division into different thematic areas as well as numerous water areas, such as the water lily pond, the reed pond and the so called Film Pond (the area around the pond had served as a filming location for monumental films during the silent movie era).

In addition, the park offers several children's playgrounds with water play, seesaws, with a merry-go-round, slides and swings, with ropeways, a labyrinth and a sound game. There is also a climbing wall, a giant pendulum swing as well as a 10-meter high swing, ball fields and beach volleyball courts, a skater park, table soccer and table tennis facilities, game tables for chess, mills and Mensch Ärgere Dich nicht as well as public toilet facilities and drinking fountains.

In the Rose Garden (6200m2), redesigned in 2019, there are numerous varieties of roses as well as grasses, lavender and various perennials.

In the center of the 600m2 Japanese Garden is a pond with two stone bridges and two stone lanterns. The planting is based on typical representatives of Japanese botany, such as Japanese maple, rhododendrons, dogwood and dwarf bamboo.

In the animal enclosure of about 4400m2 there are some breeds of farm animals. Alpacas, dwarf goats and Carinthian spectacled sheep stay on a fenced green area of about 10 000m2. The stable building with drinkers and feeders has a covered outdoor area
