The park is a great place for kids, because they are allowed to feed ducks and swans. Østre Anlæg historically speaking. In the 1920’s the Eastern part of Aalborg grew heavy and the former tile works that was surrounded by meadows up to Nørre Tranders, was now surrounded by tower flats.

To give the increasing population a recreational place, the first part of Østre Anlæg was opened in 1934 and no later than 1937 the popular, child-friendly playground was established that still to this day is visited by local children with their parents. Østre Anlæg is at the same time a popular excursion spot for many visitors from the rest of Denmark and foreign nations that year after year return to the Capital of the Northern Jutland, Aalborg.
