The article presents possibilities for recreational development of former freight railroad stations. Two sites located in central parts of cities are presented as examples: the Park am Gleisdreieck in Berlin and the Spoor Noord in Antwerp. Parks that have been developed on former railroad areas have already become part of the city landscape in a special way, preserving the genius loci they have become a place of recreation, as well as an excellent tourist attraction.
