If you want to meet the locals, come to the park.
For most people living in the city means living in an apartment, which also means that if you’re lucky, you might have a balcony but you’re unlikely to have your own garden. That leaves quite a large number of people looking for a garden substitute. So we all go to the park.
And my very own backyard so to speak is Nørrebroparken. Everybody and his dog from my neighbourhood go here, but visitors from outside Nørrebro are more than welcome. The park is a long stretch of green from the skate facility by Hillerødgade to the far corner of Assistens Kirkegård (check the Assistens Kirkegård article) on Jagtvej, and it has everything: football fields, volleyball, ping pong table (you’ll have to bring your own bat, though) an urban vegetable garden, large trees, a barbeque area and corners with tall grass you can hide in and also a large playground named The Bermuda Triangle – you’ll see why when you visit.
