Brunnenplatz is a 33,060 m2 square in Gesundbrunnen, right on the banks of the Panke. Roads that limit it are Pankstraße, Schönstedtstraße and Thurneysserstraße. The square is rectangular, but is divided into two parts by the building of the district court. Behind the district court to the Pankelauf there is a landscaped part, in front of the district court a small park with paths, a fountain and playgrounds.

During the Second World War, the square served as garden land to supply the population, so that after the war the square began again from the beginning. The designs were now drawn back to the garden planner Günther Rieck, who this time had the originally planned areas created, but did not use the fountain. The abolition of the Orthstraße allowed the inclusion of the area behind the district court in the park, which, however, was more oriented towards landscaped gardens with loosely curved paths and individual tree groups.
