Picnicking at a park in Malmo

I am coming to Malmo on Friday and, since the weather forecast seems good, I started thinking this may be a great opportunity to use my backpack picnic set finally.

I was wondering if this is legal to go out and picnic in Malmo's parks. If so, which parks is it allowed in / would you recommend, and what rules should I follow?

Is it legal to bring the bike with me onto the park green and keep it by wherever we're picnicking (assuming there is such an opportunity), or do I need to find a bike stand and chain my bike there and walk from there to the picnic green?

I haven't heard of a single park in Sweden where you aren't allowed to have a picnic. There are some parks where you aren't allowed to consume alcohol, but that's the only restriction as far as I know.

Regarding the bike. Depends on what the park looks like. Place the bike in a bike stand if you find one close-by.

Tack så mycket för din snabba och användbara svar! And pardon my awful Swedish :D

If I don't find a bike stand close by, is taking my bike on the lawn improper?

Depends a bit on the park, but most people would bring the bike onto the lawn if they don't find a bike stand very close by.
