More than just green and g(r)as(s)! — You are standing in front of the Griftpark, a source of income worth millions to the city of Utrecht.
The Griftpark is an extraordinary park. What was once a gasworks factory, has in close consultation with the local residents, been turned into a park. It is unique that a park was built on the disused factory site rather than new homes. The local residents were involved with the entire project. Their wishes included a scenic area, a petting zoo, art and a skate park. This makes the park very different to the 'traditional' parks in Utrecht.
