petition: keep Mauerpark green – A World-Citizens-Park

The Mauerpark in Prenzlauer Berg is one of Berlin’s unique spots that is frequently overcrowded. Especially on Sundays – especially during the summer months people gather, play music, frisbee, have a grill snack, a drink, a talk – or go shopping on one of Berlin’s wildest most interesting flee markets.

And the mixture of people is rather interesting two: since Mauerpark built on former Berlin Wall ground, on the so called Death Corridor, it is situated rigth between Wedding and Prenzlauer Berg – rigth between East and West Berlin – somewhere between the past / history and future.

But the park is at its limits – it is just a bit too small for its sheer popularity. After the original plans the Mauerpark should have been built by 2-3-4 times the size – the only problem is that the city of Berlin can not pay for it. Or maybe the city of Berlin does not want to invest in this *project*, and has a different plan for the future of Mauerpark. Instead there are now plans to sell the “waste land” that should actually be part of the park to investors – and they’re planning to build high value real estate – so called city houses with roof top terraces, garages, elevaters and… what not.

Well. Enough Prelude. What are your plans?
