Gellerup Urban Park
Gellerup/Toveshøj’s new urban park will be the green backbone for the transformation of Gellerup/Toveshøj into an attractive neighborhood in Aarhus. In SLA's design, the city park will benefit the citizens in Gellerup/Toveshøj as well as the rest of Aarhus, and will become a safe and beautiful green space with activities and functions for all - from playgrounds, climbing towers and outdoor fitness, to fruit groves and greenhouses. The result is a completely new type of urban park that gives safety and new recreational opportunities for the residents while also adding a variety of aesthetic, sensual and human values which were not there before.
