Local schools and family facilities in Hoengg

I wondered if anyone who lives in or near Hoengg could help with my questions. We are moving from Basel to Zurich and have been looking in Hoengg where it seems the rents are quite reasonable (and its close to my husband's work in Oerlikon). We plan on sending our children to local school (they are 7 and 4) and wondered if anyone could advise on local schools and what facilities there are for families with children here. I am not very familiar with Zurich and I am looking for a family friendly area.

Many thanks!

Re: Local schools and family facilities in Hoengg

I can't help you with the schools, but I can tell you that Höngg is a really nice area. Being a little outside the centre it's quiet and there is a lot of green space. And the area around the Limmat is lovely, especially now summer is coming . I'd also say it's a very child friendly area.

You'll have the "Quartiertreff Höngg" which organises activities for families http://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/content/...ngg_1_2011.pdf
