the park, existing since 2001, offers to children, youngsters and families supervised skate facilities, a playground as well as volley- basketball, and football grounds. furthermore the park gathers all aspects of youth culture, going from rehearsal rooms for bands to a youth hostel.
Mellowpark made a name of itself during the years also outside berlin. mostly through events like Highway to hill, German Open (BMX championship) and Summerclash.
unfortunately a nightmare has become true for the operators of the park. the Treuhand-Gesellschaft handed in notice to the „all eins e.V“ who runs the mellowpark, which will officially terminate on the 31st of december 2008. they are in fact planning to build luxus apartments on the site.
the syndicate of the initiative „hands away from Mellowpark“ dont want to give up thou, they will keep fighting for their park! at least to find an equivalent site for it.
PLATOON supports Mellowpark....and you should do it as well.
