In 1873, gardener Vieth from Wittenburg was commissioned by the owners of the fine paper mill to plan a park right next to the industrial site. Laid out in the style of an English landscape park with ponds and dendrological rarities, the park was then as it is today a place of tranquility where people can find relaxation.
Today, the park and the Wilhelminian villas, together with the factory grounds, form a listed ensemble. Mighty trees dominate the picture; in addition, visitors can enjoy a splendor of blossoms of laburnum and lilac, rhododendron and tulip magnolia, as well as many other exotic trees and shrubs in spring. Many of the dendrological features originate primarily from North America and Asia.
But the park is also a place of contemporary history. In 1946, the factory was dismantled and the greenery fell into disrepair. Many plants disappeared, the trees were marked by wounds and the ground was rutted by tank tracks. Even in the early 1990s, the park was a rather sad sight. Today, Bausch Park is a well-kept landscape garden and impressive natural monument. After extensive renovation work, it is an ideal place for the residents of Kloster Dobbertin gGmbH to spend time in the green, and is also open to other visitors all year round.
