Görlitzer Park (nicknamed Görli) is an 800-by-200 metre park in Kreuzberg, Berlin, Germany.[1][2][3] At its north-west end is the Görlitzer Bahnhof U-Bahn station.

The park was created in the 1980s on the site of the former Berlin Görlitzer Bahnhof railway terminus. In addition to being a popular green space among Berliners, Görlitzer Park is widely known as a hotspot for purchasing cannabis.[4][5]
