German term or phrase: Ziergehölz
Der Eingang in den westlichen Teil des Geländes wird über das „Hamburger Tor“ möglich sein. Hallenschauen, Wechselflorflächen, Spielplätze und Ziergehölz sollen hier errichtet werden. Der östliche Bereich wird mit Themengärten, Nationengärten, Eislaufbahn (!), Spielplätzen, Veranstaltungsbühne und dem Weidendom Besucher erfreuen.

ornamental shrubbery
Explanation:
Here are some references: Langenscheidt Muret-Sanders says one meaning of Gehölz is Holzgewächse = woody plants.
The Concise Oxford defines shrub as woody plant smaller than a tree ... I guess it's hard to say without more details on the kind of Gehölz.
