From the very beginning the park was a massive volunteer-driven project. Thousands of volunteers devoted their time, other citizens donated money, companies provided transportation and materials, and postal stamps were issued and many other fundraising events held to support the park’s construction.
Additionally about 2.000 workers from local industry were delegated to support the construction of the park as social work. They helped cleaning the site, removing approx. 3.5 million m3 of highly polluted soil and replacing by 0.5 million m3 of fertile soil and turf, as well as planting about 3.5 million trees and shrubs.
