Another nice park in the city May 19, 2017
In 1931 this park was named after a former mayor of the city, Bernhard Blüher. It goes back to the 17th century, when it was a property outside the city walls with a summer house surrounded by a lovely garden. Owners were several noble Dresden families, between 1764 and 1926 it was owned by the ruling family of Saxony, relatives of the Elector princes and later Kings of Saxony. In 1926 the city of Dresden bought the site, since then it's a public park. The northern part of the park was used for the construction of the Hygiene Museum until 1930. In WWII the mansion, once in the middle of the park, was destroyed and in 1950 the site was cleared from the rubble, nowadays you only see a few relics of the basements and stairs.

Some years ago the park was reconstructed in its former structures. Nowadays you can recognise the old main axis in the style of the 1930s again, existing structures like the circular fountain were restored, ditto the original sculptures and Baroque vases. The lawns are always carefully maintained, almost manicured, a playground for children was added and an old bastion, part of the historic fortifications, was turned into a nice resting area with benches and a good view.
