9. Ørestad City Park
The city park consists of eight small activity islands. Each of the islands features a different theme, including unique swings, a slide island and a picnic island. The cycling island is recommended for children learning to cycle, as its winding paths, road lines and pedestrian crossings help to learn the rules of the road in a safe setting.
