Second phase for the redevelopment of the Jahn Sports Park begins

Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark in Berlin

The Senate Department for Urban Development, Building and Housing has launched the second competition phase for the redesign of the Friedrich Ludwig Jahn Sports Park.

At the beginning of the week, an eleven-member jury had selected 15 works for the second phase from the 24 competition entries that had to be submitted by 1 July. This was announced by the Senate Administration on Wednesday. The Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark is to be redesigned as a "sports park for all" to become a barrier-free inclusion sports park. Climate protection and biodiversity are equally high priorities.
