Until a few years ago, there was hardly any evidence in the Schwanenseepark that indicated its glorious past. Over time, the green space between Werftstrasse and Ostring, Franziusallee and Klausdorfer Weg / Hangstrasse in the Ellerbek district of Kiel, characterized by six ponds and many trees, was literally overgrown. This changed with the founding of the citizens' initiative “AG Schwanenseepark”, which has been campaigning for the revival of the original character of this over one hundred year old park since 2008.With the citizens' initiative becoming active, the Kiel city administration has again increasingly invested in the Schwanenseepark. In the meantime, it is not only the new white wooden railings on the bridges that give a glimpse of the park's old elegance. At the big park festival on June 1, 2013, people from the immediate vicinity of the Schwanensee Park as well as many Kielers from the west side of the fjord were able to convince themselves of this and celebrated enthusiastically.kiel-wiki.de/Schwanenseepark
