115 25 Djurgårdsbrunn, Sweden
A Bike Ride Along the CanalStockholm is an amazingly beautiful city with an extensive network of parkland easily accessible from the downtown.
While visiting, I rented a bike and rode to the island of Djurgårdsbrunn, which is one of the Royal Parks known as Ekoparken (6,671 acres), the first national city park in the world.
The park weaves along the water and the canals, meandering through diverse landscapes that border residential neighborhoods. There is informational and directional signage throughout, as well as places to stop for an ice cream, a meal, or a dip in the water.
Once a royal hunting ground, the park balances naturalistic features with historic buildings, monuments, and museums that are sited throughout.
