A Trek Park on the former industrial site near the main railway station, designed as a competence centre for mobility for all ages.

BWM have won the competition to design a transport museum in Ostrava (Czech Republic) with a master plan for a Trek Park on a former industrial area near the main station. The project aims to open the industrial area and to develop it into a cultural urban district with public spaces, a coffee house and further attractions focusing on the topics „bicycle, mobility and public transport.

"Move your body"

Ostrava is getting a new cultural district for leisure activities near the main railway station with the Trek Park. At the centre of the park is a collection of historic trams and buses that symbolise the city's rise to a 20th century industrial metropolis, for which an old transformer building is being adapted as a museum. In addition, the Trek Park will be made attractive by new forms of activities under the motto "Move your body". Johann Moser: "Bike, skater park, zipline or traffic school - the Trek Park is a "center of excellence in mobility" for all ages. Here you can also playfully try out new technical mobile special equipment and new forms of movement." Part of the space will be made available to other companies and start ups, of course to those for whom mobility is also an issue.
