Pildammsparken Malmö – Nice park for jogging or a picnic

"Pildammsparken" in Malmö is perfect for people who like going for a run now and again -- I love its 3km circular path that goes around most of the lake...

Malmö prides itself on being the 'city of parks', and the park called Pildammsparken does not disappoint. I especially like walking around its lake for a crisp autumn or spring stroll. Visitors to Malmö who like going for a run now and again will be pleased to know that the park has a 3km circular path that goes around most of the lake and also zigzags through many other parts of the beautiful park.

A celebration called ‘Valborg’ takes places in Pildammsparken every April 30th, complete with a huge bonfire lit at 20:00 and countless teenagers doing their parents proud as many sip a concoction called a ‘häxa’ (witch) – basically they take a little bit from the top of every bottle of liquor they could find at home, mix it all up, and proceed to drink it throughout the course of the afternoon and evening. Not the prettiest of sites, but what’s a Scandinavian festivity without incorporating some kind of drinking right?

I like going to Pildammsparken with a picnic and some friends and playing a fun garden game like kubb or ladder golf. I can’t think of a better way to spend a few hours in the Swedish sun.

I actually think it's the best weather in the world when it’s a nice day – low to mid-20s Celsius, the sun is up well into the evening due to Sweden's high latitude, no humidity, and like anyone would love and appreciate (especially a Canadian like me), no mosquitoes in Malmö.
