Fitness in the Kaiserin-Auguste-Viktoria-Park

Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler.
The Kaiserin-Auguste-Viktoria-Park directly on the banks of the Ahufer in the Hemmessen district of Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler was also severely affected by the devastating flood last July.

But the multigenerational playground, which was originally planned for 2022 and was under construction at the time of the flood, survived the disaster comparatively well. “For this reason, construction work could resume in the autumn after the park has been cleaned,” said Jörn Kampmann, former CEO and now trustee of the Landesgartenschau-Gesellschaft, during an on-site visit to the new facility. in the presence of the city leaders with Guido Orthen and Peter Diewald. Because once the work is finished, this fitness area will be available to the public and has already been well received. The members of the supervisory board of the Landesgartenschau-Gesellschaft, of which Orthen is chairman, as well as Matthias Pentgen from the Mainz Ministry of Economic Affairs and Ulrike Sacher and Welmar Rietmann from the horticultural fair project company were convinced of this at the meeting. official. .

Boasting fitness instructions and soft drop protection, the new facility certainly has a unique selling point. Because, according to Kampmann, it is the “only State Garden Show project that could go ahead as originally planned.” The multigenerational playground cost €320,000, with the state of Rhineland-Palatinate co-financing the installation as part of the sports facility promotion with a flat fee of €100,000.

“Various sports equipment with different functions are located in the middle of an attractive park and serve both the health and fitness of users. Since the devices are designed for outdoor use and can be used independently, they offer a individual training opportunity and ideal for everyone,” Kampmann describes the facility in the park, which is named after former godmother of spring Auguste-Viktoria. In addition, the orange devices made of stainless steel can be used at any time of the day, which also increases flexibility.

Guido Orthen is pleased with the state horticultural show company, which implemented this project before its liquidation: “We are pleased that we can now offer added value for all citizens with the multigenerational playground originally planned for the state horticultural show. The supply infrastructure of our city thus gains an additional pillar”. “A ray of hope in difficult times”, agreed the members of the supervisory council. Because a mere view from the park on the Ahr was enough to see that there are still countless wounds inflicted by the flood to heal.
