The campaign WESTBAHNPARK asks politicians and authorities involved in city planning to make the following project happen in Vienna's 15th District along Felberstraße near Vienna West Station: This unique and important area should become a public green space in the form of a linear park for everybody. Measuring 70.000 m2, we invision it stretching from Vienna West Station to Johnstraße and from Felberstraße all the way to the rail tracks with a passage towards the city and view to Vienna Woods. An urban space that is 1.2 kilometres long, climate friendly, socially benificial and which includes the world's longest swim lane.
Time has come for a new park in the midst of this dense city! More and more development projects and less green spaces lead to extreme conditions and an unhealthy environment to live in. Especially in districts like Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus which is extremely densley populated, has little open spaces and low average income. Climate friendly city planning is vital. This is why we call for a new park to be built at the last remaining available strip of land along Felberstraße.
City Councillor Sima and ÖBB Infrastruktur officially propagate the green space but are already negotiating the building development. There is a threat of the area being divided up into building plots and tiny green spaces. We strongly oppose this and are calling for a large, continuous, long park without buildings, which will improve the climate and provide the city with fresh air and green space.
The last large inner-city open space is an opportunity of the century for Vienna! Quality of life is set for generations. One of the most densely populated districts needs a large park and not small open space compromises.
Let's demand the Westbahnpark together!

this is an update for the Westbahnpark: The city planning department is now focusing on the Westbahn area and has allocated the mandate for the development process including public participation. In this context, we have been invited to an interview. Our petition should be handed over to the councilwoman at an effective moment. We will determine such, once the sequence of the process is clear.
In any case, we continue to bring up wind for the important climate corridor WESTBAHNPARK. This is happening already on the 9th of October 2022 within the frame of the urbanize! festival: We collect fresh air at Wienerwald and transport it to the city.
Everyone is welcome to join: 9th of October, 12:05 at Nikolaitor in Vienna.
