Parents and children have been waiting for this for a long time: In Mulheim there is a brand new renovated playground.

But the anticipation quickly fades. Barely three weeks after the opening, the sight of the playground is frightening Mulheim now even the children off.

Mülheim: Brand new playground on the Ruhr – but now nobody wants to go there anymore

On June 1st, the playground “Auf dem Dudel” was officially opened. Since then, children have been able to enjoy a brand new playground directly on the Ruhr – at least that’s the plan.

A mother wanted to go to the playground with her daughter. The anticipation was great even before the opening. Accordingly, the first day was “a great time”, as she reports on Facebook. But barely three weeks later, even the little one no longer wants to go there.

Mülheim: New playground was celebrated heavily – but THIS is how it looks today

A little walk by the mother with her daughter began harmlessly. The two wanted to visit the new playground again. “But then we got closer and the picture that then presented itself only made you sad and super thoughtful,” wrote the Mülheim native.


This is the city of Mülheim an der Ruhr:

  • was first mentioned in 1093, in 1808 the city rights were granted
  • lies between Duisburg, Essen and Düsseldorf
  • has 170,632 inhabitants (as of December 2019), consists of nine districts in three districts
  • Sights: Styrum Castle, Saarn Monastery and the Bismarck Tower
  • Mayor is Marc Buchholz (CDU)


The whole playground was littered “with bags, paper, drinking packets, leftovers, waste from peeled sunflowers, old diapers,” the mother reports. Your child was tired of the once popular playground.

Mülheim in turmoil because of the garbage playground – “Just sad”

The mother just makes it “simply sad and also kind of angry” to see the new playground in such a condition. Other Mülheimers and parents can understand the frustration all too well.
