    First of all, the Uellenberg Park is an idyllic place with well-tended plantings and benches that invite you to linger.Furthermore, it is also a park with a sunken garden - with traces of English garden art!With its sunken area on the central lawn area, this system appears to be nested: a lowered, rectangular lawn area framed by a path, a wall border, a strip of planting bed and further lawn and another circumferential path. Steps in the four corners lead to the lower area.Towards the surrounding street, the complex is loosely surrounded by woody plantings, while inside individual woody plants loosen up the lawns.A large number of benches are available for visitors, while the play area is located south of the facility and behind a woody plantation.Source: wuppertal.de/tourismus-freizeit/gruenes_wuppertal/quartier/uellenberg-platz.php

    A beautiful, well-kept place with lots of flowers, paths and a children's playground. Some sun worshipers sit on the benches and spend their day outdoors.

    The work of art comes from the Wuppertal sculptor Hildegard Lutze-Froese and was unveiled on November 21, 1981 at Uellenberg. It is simply called "marble sculpture".The artist Lutze-Froese was born in 1937 as the daughter of the well-known pastor of the Confessing Church Hermann Lutze (1903-1987), who worked in the southern part of Elberfeld for many years after the Second World War. Until 1968 he was pastor of the Johanneskirche in Von der Heydt-Park, so one of the predecessors of today's pastor Gerson Monhof. Hildegard Lutze-Froese also created a bronze figure of Christ for the Johanneskirche.The work is a gift from the former Mayor of Wuppertal and later Minister of State Dr. Otto Schmidt. It used to be in the garden of his Wuppertal house on Am Walde, only a few houses away from the Born publishing house, where our newsletter has been produced for decades. On the occasion of his 78th birthday, on August 1, 1980, Dr. Schmidt it the city of Wuppertal.Source: buergerverein-elberfelder-suedstadt.de/zschrift2-2014/marmorskulpturUellenbergplatz.html

    The location arose from a farm that was mentioned in a document as early as the 15th century as being on Uellenberg. A member of the owner family, Gottfried Uellenberg, was Elberfeld's mayor in 1640. On the Topographia Ducatus Montani by Erich Philipp Ploennies from 1715, the farm is listed as Ulenberg. The Elverfeldt view in the prospect of Nordl. Page from 1760 shows the place as Vorm Üllenberg. On the topographical survey of the Rhineland from 1824 a place is recorded as Am Ullenberg, on the Prussian first survey of 1843 as Üllenberg.In 1815/16 the place had 37 inhabitants. In 1832 the place belonged to the Fuhrter Rotte of the rural outskirts of the parish and the city of Elberfeld. The place, which was categorized as an arable farm and a brewery according to the statistics and topography of the Düsseldorf administrative district, was referred to as vorm Uellenberg and at that time had three residential buildings and five agricultural buildings. At that time 37 people lived in the village, all of them Protestant faith.By 1909, a square was expanded at the place, which was called Emil Uellenberg-Platz (folk local poet, 1874-1944) or Uellenberg-Platz between 1935 and 1985. A street on site was named on January 18, 1910 in Am Uellenberg. In the 1930s, the last buildings were demolished and the area used as a garbage dump. In 1939 the area was redesigned into today's park. Today the park and the local area are surrounded by residential developments.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uellenberg_(Wuppertal)
