An orangery, a pond, an avenue of trees and plenty of greenery: the park encompasses an area of around 2.6 hectares and was created in 1766. It combines the grounds of three baroque estates of the families Werthemann-Stähelin, Le Grand and Elbs-Birr. The two larger estates were initially surrounded by French baroque gardens. After the three estates were consolidated in 1812, the gardens were transformed into an English landscape park – following the zeitgeist of the times. Riehen's public music school is now housed in the for-mer residence and farm buildings of the Elbs-Birr estate. Sarasinpark is located to the north of Riehen's old town centre, directly opposite the Fondation Beyeler.
