In the 1970s, five district parks were built between Duisburg and Dortmund as leisure and recreation areas for the hard-working population. All parks were equipped with then innovative facilities consisting of leisure houses, play and sports facilities, as well as open-air and wave pools. The open space with large wooded areas was also an important part of the green and recreational concept.
Today, the parks are aging and the importance of the open spaces has changed: They serve as important climatic balancing spaces on hot days, habitats for flora and fauna, and large storage areas during rain events.

The social factor of parks that can be used for free also plays a major role in some neighborhoods and serves to improve environmental justice and counteract social disparities. The necessary conversion is associated with considerable modernisation measures, for which there is now the opportunity to realign the parks for the future via the ERDF funding programme "Green Infrastructure". Based on our Integrated Action Concept "Future and Home: Revierparks 2020", which we developed together with RHA and sds_utku, the five Revierparks from Duisburg to Dortmund were included in the

recommendation for funding under the 2nd call for the ERDF funding programme "Green Infrastructure" in December 2017.

The funding volume amounts to over EUR 28 million and is to be used for the overhaul of the parks of the Ruhr Regional Association. The aim is sustainable development of the climate and environmental conditions. This includes improving access to green space, especially in disadvantaged urban districts, as well as networking green and open space elements and increasing biodiversity.
