No, there is absolutely nothing political about the name of this area. It’s called The Red Square because the coating on the ground is red, all kinds of different reds, although time, weather and tear have now given it more of a pink-purple shade in many places. The park opened in 2012, and basically it’s a playground for adults.
The big white four-person swings are a favoured place for people to sit and chat, and if you’re up for a little outdoor exercise there are different kinds of equipment for exactly that. In places the ground is covered with a soft padding that makes it more comfortable to do exercises on the ground, and it’s also quite fun to walk on.
The square houses a variety of different events such as concerts, flea markets, readings, modern drama and movie viewings, but even if nothing special is going on on a particular day, it’s a good spot for just sitting and enjoying life on outer Nørrebro.
The Red Square is actually just one part of the park facility, Superkilen, so I recommend that you take a detour to the other side of The Red Square and explore The Black Square and The Green Square – which is more of an urban park really – that lies behind it.
