The Mauerpark is a park and owes its name to the Berlin Wall built in 1961, which at this point formed the border between the districts of Prenzlauer Berg and Wedding. This is where the border runs between today's districts of Prenzlauer Berg (Pankow district) and Gesundbrunnen (Mitte district). To the west is the Brunnenviertel, which belongs to Gesundbrunnen, and to the east is the Gleimviertel, which belongs to Prenzlauer Berg.The elongated open-air site runs along the section of Schwedter Strasse, which is closed to motor traffic, between Eberswalder and Bernauer Strasse and the Ringbahn. Since there are comparatively few green spaces in the densely built-up Prenzlauer Berg, the Mauerpark has developed into a popular place for local recreation, which offers a home to artists, musicians and families, especially on weekends, and has made a name for itself beyond Berlin.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mauerpark
