The nature walk starts at the Unterstraße stop and leads you through the green area called Läppkes Mühlenbach. You reach Gleispark over a red bridge which connects Essen and Oberhausen. The route takes you past large spacious fields to Haus Ripshorst, which is situated in the Oberhausen metropolitan area on the Rhine-Herne canal and the river Emscher
Extensive construction work by Emschergenossenschaft (water management association) is in progress here: in future, the wastewater will be led away in closed channels so the river and its tributaries will be gradually turned into semi-natural water bodies. The aim of the Emscher conversion work is to upgrade the Emscher location with projects extending far beyond the watercourse.
