The one-hectare Melk City Park is typical of many small public parks from the period before 1900. It was designed on the model of the St. Pölten City Park and opened in May 1886.

Cross-shaped and circumferential paths divide the park into four sections with a central square. The facilities included a pavilion, fountain and weather house. In 1904 a monument was dedicated to the park's initiator Franz X. Linde.
