The aim of the design for the civic garden in Templin is to raise sunken places and add active places of experience. The vital stock of trees and shrubs, the meadow areas and the numerous path connections form the basis of a sustainable redesign. The tree-covered meadow on Park Street remains free of structural interventions in order to make it possible to experience the depth of the park.

The northeastern slope areas with trees, copses, toboggan run, stairs and terraces with excellent view connections to the historic old town of Templin were assessed as particularly valuable.

A new, three-meter-wide, barrier-free path leads from Parkstraße across the canal meadows to the forest avenue at the parking lot and opens up the adventure areas.

Two terraces with a height difference of 4 meters protrude from the meadow slope and offer space for fitness and play activities. In addition to a fun-run balancing course for all generations, there is exercise equipment in line with the latest sports science findings.

An interesting adventure play landscape has been created on the upper terrace. Here children can climb, slide and swing over net bridges, play nets, tree bridges. From framing seats the view goes over to the historical old town. For the smaller ones a sand play area, a nest swing and a merry-go-round are ready.

The historical heart of the "citizen garden" forms the 750 m ² large pond with its source reason and the Rhododendronhang. The pond was cleaned from scratch and freed from oppressive wild growth. The concrete edge was renovated. A water feature forms the eye-catcher and circulates the water.

The adjacent linden avenue to the south leads into the forest park. At the end of the avenue, a clearing opens up and has been enhanced with a "Forest Gate" play sculpture in the form of abstracted Templin town gates made of wood with a bridge and slide.
