Favourite parks in Stockholm:

1. Ivar Los Park: Located on Mariaberget on Södermalm this park has a stunning view over Stockholm City. It’s a calmer and smaller alternative to most parks that people go to here in Stockholm. Ivar Los Park got great playgrounds for kids so this is a perfect park for families.
2. Vanadislunden: This big park in Vasastaden is a great park for walks and picnics, other than that there’s two big swimming pools in the middle of the park. Great thing about this park is that it’s right in the city, next to Sveavägen, but when you’re in the park you’ll still get that feeling of being outside of the city.
3. Djurgården: This island, close to Stockholm’s central parts, is loved by both tourists and local people. Other than the beautiful walks along the water the island is popular for all the museums as well as the amusement park ”Gröna Lund” that’s also located on Djurgården.
4. Rålambshovsparken: ”Rålis”, as Stockholmer’s call it, is a popular park on Kungsholmen where a lot of people go during spring and summer to hang out. The park holds one of Stockholm’s greater skate parks and you can also play soccer and beach volley ball, swim in Mälaren or have something to eat at the park’s restaurant.
