Nordpark

The Nordpark – synonymous with relaxation, fountains, sculptures, beautiful mature trees, decorative flowerbeds, playgrounds, an aquazoo and a Japanese Garden.
All this variety is doubtlessly one of the reasons why this 36.6-hectare park is one of the most popular in Düsseldorf.

The park is traversed by wide paths, while the different garden areas are separated by spacious lawns bordered by trees. Besides geometrically landscaped flowerbeds, the park also contains themed gardens like the lily garden, which has a pond surrounded by pillars that provide welcome shade in summer.
Altogether, the Nordpark has 4000 square metres of ponds, fountains and water features. If you enter the Nordpark from the Kaiserswerther Straße, the view into the park is dominated by the water features in the 170-metre-long basin, and the subsequent large fountain further along this axis.

The beautifully planted flowerbeds, which are completely replanted twice a year and which cover a total area of 3800 square metres, are also a popular attraction whatever the season. The convenient location of the Nordpark is also part of its draw: above all its proximity to the Rhine and its easterly extension along the so-called “Memorial Axis” to the Nordfriedhof cemetery, make it a popular destination for a leisurely stroll. 

The Nordpark was created in 1937 for the “Große Reichsausstellung Schaffendes Volk” (Great Reich Exhibition of the Productive People) based on designs by the director of Düsseldorf’s Parks Department Willi Tapp. Because of the area’s relative flatness, the park was designed as a large open space aligned along a series of axes. It was built on mainly undeveloped land with only moderate soil quality. After the Second World War, the popular park was occupied by British forces. It was handed back to the city bit by bit between 1953 and 1985.
