The Parks in Malmö

Malmö is famous for its parks, make sure you have a stroll in at least some of them, before you leave. You will find out it was very worthwhile.

We have three main parks in the centre; Slottsparken (The Castle Park), Kungsparken (The King´s Park) and Pildammarna (The Willow Ponds). In only five minutes you can walk from the centre to Slottsparken and Kungsparken. Add another fifteen minutes to get to Pildammarna.

These are only some of 16 parks of Malmö. Others are Raoul Wallenbergs park, Ribersborg, Bulltofta park and Bunkeflo ängar. 

In Västra hamnen, the new, modern district by the sea, there are Scaniapark, with vast open green spaces and Daniapark featuring outstanding park architecture and great spots for sunbathing.

Linnéplatsen in Slottsparken 1950.

This sculpture can also be found in Des Moines, Iowa, and Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. The artist himself, Milles, was present at the opening ceremony and said that Pegasus symbolizes the free flight of the mind, and also stated that this sculpture is his masterpiece
.

Slottsparken

Slottsparken (The Castle Park) is a modern city park that has water as its main motif. Big stretches of woodland, wonderful views and plenty of park benches characterizes this park. The park used to be a training ground for

the Malmö Household Regiment during the 19th century. The park, which was designed by Edvard Glæsel, was inspired by American everyday parks.

The main library and Slottsmöllan (The Castle Mill) can be found in the Castle Park as well, and a "must" in the park is the sculpture Pegasus by Carl Milles, one of Sweden's most important sculptors.

 

Kungsparken

The oldest park in Malmö is Kungsparken (The King' s Park) which lies right in the heart of Malmö. It used to be a burial ground hundreds of years ago, but was turned into a park in 1872. Today it's a romantic park with a number of exotic trees. 

The Danish landscape gardener Ove Høegh Hansen had been inspired by English parks and landscape gardening when he designed the park. 

When the park officially opened, it was called King Oscar's park, but it became known as the King's park, which is a name that has stayed until today.

 

Pildammsparken

The biggest park is Pildammsparken, a classic park that is one of its kind in northern Europe. Over 10.000 flowers are planted in the "flower-alley" every year.

Stroll along fantastic gardens and watch the exotic birds.

The park originates from the Baltic exhibition in 1914. Today, families go to the park to feed the ducks and geese, play at the playground, or just to enjoy the fantastic sights which could be taken from a romantic movie!

 

Enjoy Malmö, the city of parks!
