The Gazelle Park was originally conceived of and fought for through one of the city’s most successful and inspiring struggles of residents.

On a sunny Friday afternoon last month, a group of middle-aged women made their way to the Gazelle Park to celebrate a birthday over a tasty picnic while watching the graceful gazelles wandering across the woods.

At the entrance of the park, a team of instructors, inspectors and employees of the municipal park greeted them and provided them with a lot of information on the place, including a detailed and colorful map of the whole park. There were nicely arranged areas for picnics throughout the park, thoughtfully situated under shade trees, and even stones to secure a picnic tablecloth from the wind.
