The city park, Karolinelund is rapidly evolving the niche culture in Aalborg. Originally an amusement park, Karolinelund has been transformed into a culture park with an array of events, concerts and more.
In Karolinelund, the beautiful graffiti testify to a multifarious city culture. The park is still fenced in by the walls that used to shield rollercoasters and shooting galleries from the city houses and roads surrounding the amusement park. Karolinelund is within walking distance of Nordkraft and Musikkens Hus.
Additionally, each summer the park is the home of 'Friday Parties' with prominent artists, which fill the park with a festive atmosphere, and the 'Friday Parties' are well-visited by the citizens of Aalborg. On sunny weekdays, the citizens of Aalborg often gather in small groups on the soft grass in Karolinelund.
Joggers also make good use of the park, as it has various challenges for joggers in the form of hills, hedges and benches. These challenges are used to do extra strength training during a run. Skaters hang out by the ramp and the smooth asphalt, which makes it ideal to put on a pair of roller skates or bring a skateboard to the park and scoot along.
Platform 4 is a volunteer house placed in the park, where creative people with an interest in digital media, art and music meet and create interesting culture. Here you can dive into the creative environment or enjoy a cold beverage in the café.
Finally, the gardens in Karolinelund, Urban Gardening, have quickly become popular among citizens of Aalborg. Flowers and vegetables grow in boxes, planters, raised beds and even in a toilet and a bathtub. The only limits are your imagination on how to plant a garden. The Gardens of Aalborg are definitely worth a visit.
