Created according to a draft by garden inspector Rothpletz in 1924, Josefwiese was listed among Zurich’s parks and gardens of communal significance worth protecting only eleven years ago. It’s the last green oasis located in the centre of the Kreis 5 district, a little Central Park in its own right, flanked by co-op buildings, the striking viaduct arches and a variety of old trees. Also part of the district park are its boules players, slackliners and above all the kiosk, whose culinary offering reflects the diversity of people at the Josi – a place to relax and get together.
