Leider ist der meiste Sand seit dem letzen Starkregen weg (Juni 2020) :-(. Man kann allerdings im hinteren Teil noch auf Sand liegen.

Hoffentlich wird der Strand dieses Jahr wieder geöffnet wenn der ganze Corona Mist besser wird. Der Strand ist perfekt um nach der Arbeit etwas zu entspannen. 🏖 Das Auto kann man auf dem Hofwiesenparkplatz in der NĂ€he abstellen oder mit der Straßenbahn bis zur Orangerie fahren. Kaffee, Bier oder Wein gibt es im BrĂŒckencafĂ© auf der UntermhĂ€user BrĂŒcke. Etwas entfernt gibt es auch einen Grillplatz und einen Beachvolleyballplatz im Park.
