Kalmar City Park

Address: Stadsparken Kalmar

Kalmar City Park is situated beside the castle. Johan Jeansson, a merchant of the town, a bust of whom has stood in the park since 1937, was the driving force behind the park project, and his donation enabled the park to be laid out between 1877 and 1880. The old "Vasa" monument also stands here, moved from Stensö in 1879.

The park contains many exotic species of plant and tree, including bamboo, plane, temple tree, walnut and Caucasian wing nut. After the opening in 1880, Carl Greene, the Royal Secretary, wrote in one of the town's newspapers "In the stadspark it is possible to breathe in health and beauty, and enjoy the summer of the leafy groups of trees.” You are welcome to wander around and enjoy!
