Situated at the centre of the Plateau, this district houses the Kirchberg’s largest green space, the Parc Central, with a pond which functions as a water collection area for rainwater and surface run-off water. Offering three shady, tree-lined areas with water areas and an open-air amphitheatre, this park was created in the year 2000 and offers extensive recreational and relaxation areas to a varied population: pupils from nearby schools, university staff and students, visitors to the National Sports Centre and everyone working on the Kirchberg. Lying between the European Institutions to the west and the business area to the east, it provides space for leisure, sport and walks. It is bordered to the north by the European School and to the south by the National Sports Centre, built in 2002 (Roger Taillibert, architect) to complement the Olympic Swimming Pool constructed in 1980.
The “Kyosk”, the park’s small restaurant/snack-bar (Polaris, architects), is also situated here. The options for children’s playground space and equipment is being extended through a new project entrusted to landscape designer Peter Latz. The new play area is set in the wooded area of the park, already equipped with see-saws, which lies between the maze (the Labyrinthe) and the CRP Henri Tudor on Avenue Kennedy, and between the old IST and the Réimerwee to the other side. In addition, several sculptures have been installed there. The Parc Réimerwee, designed along the line of an ancient Roman road, is accessed via the extension of the Parc Central. The Parc Réimerwee is planted with a collection of European native trees and can be accessed directly from the residential area, Avalon. This district will be completed by the construction of the “Réimerwee East” and “Réimerwee West” housing developments, for which the architectural competition was held in 2015.
