Luxembourg City’s Largest Park

The Gasperich Park project is part of the development of the new Ban de Gasperich district. Covering an area of 16.6ha, it is the largest park and the green lung of the Luxembourg capital.

Located along Boulevard Kockelscheuer and opposite the National Fire and Rescue Centre (CNIS), the park will include numerous facilities: a playground for children, sports facilities (multi-sport, beach volleyball and petanque courts, fitness trail), a refreshment bar, a 7,000m2 artificial pond, various facilities for walkers (pergolas, bleachers, footbridges to walk around the pond). The project also provides for the ecological restoration of the Drosbach stream over a substantial length of 810 metres in order to reduce the risk of flooding.

Consequently, trees have been felled to make way for the new facilities, and new sewage and rainwater networks have been installed.

The park will be accessed by seven entrances, linked by a network of branching paths covering a total distance of 4 km. A large, fully paved main loop of 1,850m will be available for pedestrians and cyclists, supplemented by 2.2km of crushed gravel paths. A raised walkway on stilts (630m) will be deployed along the Drossbach stream. Some paths will be built using large trapeze-shaped slabs to create a circle. More than 300 slabs in total, prefabricated by Contern.
