In 1852, the Park was designed by landscape architect Peter Joseph Lenne laid and city gardener by the name of yanque for the hospital of the name of Mary.

In connection with the construction of a new resort area with located in it the hotel Quellenhof, a covered gallery, a health centre and a new Spa building, in 1916, the city Park became a resort Park. In the future, the Park built a roller skating rink, a Boulevard, a tennis club under the open sky and other parts of the Park with a total cost of about 100,000 Imperial stamps, the monetary unit of that time.

In 1605, on the territory of modern monchinski alleys of the Park emerged the Protestant cemetery, which ceased to operate in 1889 and today remains more of a monument with a few gravestones with the names of important historical persons of Aachen.
