Uppsala has many beautiful green parks to discover. Some are large and form part of the city’s everyday living landscape; others are hidden little gems.
In the popular Stadsträdgården city garden, you can play kubb, fish or just sit on the jetty and dangle your legs as the sun sets. Stadsträdgården has lush flower beds and a beautiful rose garden.
Richly biodiverse Vasaparken and Carolinaparken have exciting playgrounds for the little ones. More modest but no less beautiful are Klosterparken, the monastery park dating from the 1200s, and Fadimes park, the memorial to Fadime Sahindal, which opened in 2012.
Those with inquiring minds can stroll among the labelled trees in Universitetsparken (University Park), while history buffs can visit Rosénparken and Artediparken, two parks named after colleagues of Linnaeus.
In Uppsala, you are never far from a park where you can relax among lovely greenery. The most central park is the green waterside of Årummet, along the river Fyrisån, with plenty of seating, exciting art and luxuriant plantings.
