The star of Floriade park is the arboretum, a beautiful living laboratory that is home to trees, plants and flowers that all contribute positively to healthier, greener cities, but there is plenty else to do on your day out. Take a trip to the future aboard the cable car along its 850-metre line. An example of alternative urban transport. Sustainable, fast and providing a fabulous bird’s-eye view of the park. For some art and culture, enjoy the extensive art and culture programme that will feature exhibitions, live music from classical to jazz to entertainment orchestras
For lovers of incredible architecture, discover green buildings that demonstrate how well architecture and green living go together, with a tower block merging into its greens surroundings, and the beauty and smart application of bio-based construction in The Growing Pavilion, built using a large number of bio-based materials including timber, hemp, mycelium, cattails and cotton.
Children can have fun at the playground simultaneously learning about the cycle of life. Just like the tomato plants, children can catch the wind on the swinging beams of the climbing frame, whilst the tree hut helps them understand how mushrooms find their way at the foot of the trees. They also find out why spiders, ladybugs and aphids can’t live without each other.
