Located in Berlin's Kreuzberg, this tucked away community garden is a green space open for everyone to enjoy. With one entrance from Kottbusser Damm 80, and the other across on Hobrechtstrasse, "Öffentliche Grünanlageand" developed by Ajb gmbh is a fresh and organic space in the urbanscape. The "learning and neighborhood garden" features a central wooden pavilion and lots of fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs for visitors to munch on.
One of Berlin’s most beautiful assets is its vast amount of green spaces and community gardens, which include Prinzessinnengarten  and this spectacular retreat in Tempelhof  made from recycled materials. The Öffentliche Grünanlageand was one of the last projects of the former East redevelopment area of Kottbusser dam , and took two years to be constructed. It is mainly used by neighbors as a recreation area for gatherings, casual picnics and for collecting some free fresh food for dinner, en route home.
A series of seats  made from stones and wood connect the garden’s two levels while creating some space for contemplation and the appreciation of scents. Raised on a wooden platform, the prefab  garden’s pavilion  is mainly made from wood and has facilities for holding small events inside. Is the perfect space for making dinners from the garden’s produce, has lots of natural light pouting in from the vertical windows, and offers shelter during extreme hot or cold weather.
