The Thiele-Aue is located on the edge of the small town of Bad Arolsen in northern Hesse and surrounds a former outdoor swimming pool. Since its closure almost 20 years ago, the site has hardly been used and is very overgrown in parts. The Thiele stream flows along the edge of the site through a paved streambed and is rarely seen. The urban redevelopment project aims to renaturalise the Thiele and make it accessible to the public. In the first construction phase, the adjacent park was redesigned as a natural space with paths and recreational areas. Next to the stream landscape there is a playground, a skate park, a bouldering wall and a calisthenics facility. The buildings of the former swimming pool will be demolished and trees replanted. The redesigns will create a natural space with versatile play and recreation opportunities for all ages.
