Eperfa Square can be reached by walking straight ahead. The square got its name following the renovation of 2010 after the few mulberry trees that have been growing there for a long time. The square was renovated as a result of a co-operation between the Association and the local authority, as well as the help of the residents of the area and the kindergarten nearby. In one of its quarters, you may find the green map of Wekerle Estate, as well as a resting area for cyclists, while in its other quarter you may see a spice garden and seats made by middle schoolers and kindergarteners of recycled PET bottles. Located on the other side of Zalaegerszeg Street is the direction indicator post developed by the architects of the Wekerle Community Association showing the most important foreign and Hungarian garden cities.

Walking between the two-apartment houses on Vonás Street, you can reach one of the four school buildings, which houses the former school number 3 (now renamed after Károly Kós). If you walk around the building, you can discover the sports hall, the kindergarten and the buildings with the apartments for teachers and the swimming pool that was built later. Walking by the headmaster’s house pertaining to the school you leave behind the corner of Thököly Street.

The interior layout of the schools was the same: 6–6 classrooms on the ground floor and the first floor, a teachers’ office, the headmaster’s office, a medical room and a service accommodation (the latter still operates to this day in the Kós School.) The basement housed the workrooms for boys and girls, the bathrooms, the day care and the engine room. The articulated facades received, in conformity with the rank of the building, a rich and diverse limestone brick decoration, stone plinth, ornate entrance gates with Art Nouveau elements. The passing of time can be noticed on the school buildings as well as these have undergone several modifications, however, of all the Wekerle houses this type of building has preserved the most

The protestant church built in 1928 is located on the other side of the road, it was built based on the plans of architect Sándor Benedicty. The original plan included the churches of all four historical congregations, but in the end only two of these were built. The protestant church was planned to be built on the current location of Eperfa Square, moreover, in the 50s, the communist party headquarters was located there.

 Arriving at the Corvin Boulevard, below the hundred-year old sycamore trees, you can see facing each other the buildings of the former schools number 4 (today with dorm rooms) and number 1, today named Pannónia school.

ALTERNATIVE ROUTE : Walking along Hungária Street, at the gates of the estate on the side of Nagykőrösi Street, the three one-storey buildings designed in a unique style can be seen, which were built in 1926–27 in the very last stage of the development of the estate, they are in the architectural style of the main square.

During World War II, this area of the estate was the most severely damaged. Fortunately, the buildings were restored based on the original plans. In 2012, along the Nagykőrösi Street (more specifically the initial section of the M5 motorway located extremely close-by) a noise barrier was finalised, which somewhat improved the quality of the life of residents living in the area.
