Nature has plenty of room to run wild at the Irchelpark. The organisation Grün Stadt Zürich (Green City Zurich) nurtures the indigenous plants and fruit trees in this wonderful 32-ha city oasis.
The park was created in the early 1980s and has always been popular with tourists to Zurich. The University of Zurich is embedded within the park. The Finnenbahn, part of the university and ETH Zurich, is the perfect place for jogging. At the lower part of the park there is an artificial lake, open grasslands and an expansive play area.
