    If a visitor to the Hanseatic city strolls through the beautiful residential area in Harvestehude, he may get the impression that he is in the London district of Notting Hill instead of Hamburg. A small green area in the middle of the residential buildings, the Innocentia Park, completes this picture.
    The idea is not too far-fetched, because the system was designed on the model of the square London parks, the so-called "squares". So he fit in perfectly with the surrounding villas and the regularly planned streets from the 19th century. After the devastating fire in 1848, the inner city area of Hamburg was architecturally reorganized according to the English model. And this pattern can still be seen particularly well on the former monastery site in Harvestehude. Checkerboard-like living quarters still present their magnificent row house style villas today. In the center of this district, the Innocentia Park was created in 1884/85 according to the designs of Franz Andreas Meyer, chief engineer of the building deputation.
    The landscaping of the green area at that time is still clearly recognizable. The focus is on an extensive, sweeping lawn, which nevertheless gives the relatively small park - it is about three hectares large - a certain width. Originally there was a natural pond on the meadow, but it has now disappeared. A belt of trees and bushes surrounds the central lawn and shields the facility from the delimiting streets. Dense and open vegetation alternate, so that views of the beautiful townhouses are released again and again. Two hills were built in the east to offer additional views of the park and its surroundings, but these are only possible to a limited extent today.
    The park is an important garden monument.
