The Tétény Meadow Family Park will be realised as the winning entry in the participatory budgeting initiative of the District around the Danube Swabian Memorial in Nagytétény (corner or Romhányi and Angeli Street in the 22nd District). The park will utilise the shade of the existing trees, adding a playground and dog park, ping pong tables and hill for tobogganing to the area – writes

According to the report in the local district newspaper, the local council worked with all entries that met the budget requirements of the tender to create the final plans. Based on these the fenced-off area will be accessible from two entrances, one on Romhányi József Street and another facing the nearby train station.

The plans include a meeting place, rain cover, ping pong tables, benches, and a drinking fountain. Children will be led to the playground through a traffic park. The playground will be lined with slides and a zipwire and divided into two sections for younger and older age groups. 

The designs also showcase a central element for the thematic large playground, housing slides, a climbing wall and swings. A set of smaller swings, trampolines and other toys will be installed around it.

The small playground will be connected to the large one but has been designed as a separate unit. A small tower and slide will be built for children under six, with swings, a dolls house and a small toy train. The sandpit will be shaded by sail-like sunshades and sprawl near the large green meadow.

A petanque court and two chess tables are planned for senior, while designers have included a ping pong and picnic tables further away from the rest of the park for teenagers. An outdoor gym and sandy beach volleyball court will be created for sports-lovers. Two smaller football goals will also be added at the bottom of the hill to facilitate ball games. The hill will serve as a grandstand in the summer and toboggan run in the winter.

A dog park will be built near the entrance facing the train station.
