    The terrain was originally used as pasture. At the beginning of the 15th century, a shooting club and a shooting range was built. During the 16th and 17th centuries, the Schützenfest was celebrated on the Platzspitz, lasting for months. The competitions with fairs attracted visitors from surrounding countries. The boys shooting had its origin also on the Platzspitz.

    In the 1980s and early 1990s, the park gained notoriety for hosting a large, open drug scene.

    The times from the 80s are over, the park is very nicely prepared and it is fun to be here.
