“nice but not the quietest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

With its nice lake/pond, this park is a place to go when you are tired of exploring Danemark's capital. Some nice statues of mythological figures and plenty of benches to sit down.
There are many young couples with their babies. They bravely lay down their picnic blanket on top of the innumerable cigaret butts flourishing on the pitiful "lawns" and enjoy the nice weather.
As most of Copenhagen's parks, this one looks quite unkempt, but even more littered with cigaret butts than the others.

“Lovely park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here to sit in the shade and have lunch. It was just lovely and like all of Copenhagen, it was very child friendly with two playgrounds. Close to Norregard station, the profile pic for it above doesn't do it justice!

“Great for kids, two playgrounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Close to the station of Nørreport you'll find this great park. It is situated around a beautiful lake, lots of places to sit for a while and forget the hectic traffic and big city life. I saw quite a few great sculptures, sure there is a map of them somewhere.
We went with a 5 years old and one 4 year old and to our delight we found two playgrounds in the park. One of them is sometimes with personell (daytime weekdays). It is fences and works well for both older and younger kids. You'll find swings, playhouses and a lot more. Toilets are close by and for free.

The other playground is more of an nature playground. Kids can train balance, walk up and down stairs made of wood, climb, jump and a lot more. Close by is a cafe and here as well toilets free of charge.
