5 years of courses at Kifaz

The course instructers and co-operation partners of the protestant Children and Family centre in the Rosengärtchen area celebrated the 5th anniversary of their courses on Tuesday this week.  The courses that the family centre offers coupled with the daycare facilities mean that the centre is able to offer continued support for children and their families from before birth up to the start of primary school.

The courses such as antenatal classes, baby massage and parenting are partly funded by peoples health insurance, but the centre also works with the “Frühe Hilfen” and “Oberursel-Pass” projects in the town. [Read more…]

Night-time Maintenance on the U-Bahn Rails

Urgent maintenance work will be carried out on the U-Bahn track between the stations “Rosengärtchen” and “Waldlust” starting on Monday night, 17th March, 2014 and on the following three nights.

Local residents have complained about the state of the rails, so these are going to be so that a “rail-grinding” machine will be used to restore their surface.

The machine will make a certain amount of noise, although we are told it is “not comparable to a pneumatic drill”.

U3 partially replaced by buses on Saturday

The U-Bahn line U3 will only operate as far as Kupferhammer on Saturday, 16th November and 23rd November, 2013 between 8am and 4pm to allow for work on the trees to take place.

Between Kupferhammer and Hohemark a replacement bus service will be in operation.

Spielplatz am Rosengärtchen to remain a playground

When I first heard about the plans to build a new Kindergarten on the playground “Spielplatz am Rosengärtchen” in the Neuhausstraße, I was horrified.  Not only because I had received incorrect information about the location from the Ausländerbeirat, but because I felt personally affected by it more than by many of the things that I write about on this site.

This is the playground that I take my children to and we even held a birthday party there once.  It has a variety of things for children to do and play on, including a large basket for a swing, a roundabout, two slides, a “bare foot path” (created incidentally by a local Scout group) and a couple of climbing frames.  It also has places for parents to sit down and even a few tables, and in summer the trees provide shade for most of the playground.

All of a sudden this was under threat, with the reason given that the number of new homes built at the northern end of Oberursel would, one day, require further child-care places to be available in the area. [Read more…]
