The square was built and opened to the public at the turn of the XIX and XX centuries.

The Volkspark Wilmersdorf itself is a more well cultivated part of a larger park complex (containing also the Rudolph-Wilde-Park), the borders of which are marked by the Rathaus Schöneberg station to the east

and to the east Hirschbrunnen, a hunting themed fountain with a golden deer at the top of a large column as a main piece.

The main landmark of the park is a XIX century Jugendstil subway station, the before mentioned U Rathaus Schöneberg. It divides the park into two parts, the so to say a more classical (described here) and romantic (Rudolph-Wilde-Park).

The station is built on the level of the park, which is below the street level. This makes it’s rooftop a kind of a bridge that pedestrians can use when moving around Schöneberg
