    Now if I was a striking blonde Swede in a white turtleneck, I'm sure I'd want to be seen here. It definitely felt like a congregation point for locals and tourists in the middle of the city. The NYC park that it reminds me the most of is neither Central Park nor Washington Square but Bryant Park because it felt very much like an urban space where you could have a meal at a higher-end eatery inside the park. In fact, it's so urban they decided to use artificial grass, something akin to Astroturf on a lot of the grounds to minimize maintenance. Those darn efficient Swedes, you betcha. As you head east of Sergels torg where the big, elliptical plaza leads to a series of underground shopping centers, you come up and see (at least in spring), the arresting sight of cherry blossom trees surrounding a large rectangular pond that apparently doubles as a concert stage when it's emptied out. It was plenty crowded around the pool, so Jamie W. and I walked a bit further south near the statue of King Charles XIII where the Astroturf was wide open for any ignorant American tourist to sit a spell as they plot their next photo stop in Stockholm. Staring at the soft serve cones passing by us as they were being licked to oblivion, we couldn't help ourselves and got a couple of the cones with chopped walnuts at a portable kiosk on the side of the park. The cones are called mjukglass in Swedish, and they were a treat despite the rare encounter with a homeless woman resulting in the only harassment we experienced on our trip. I have to admit the lack of racial diversity in Stockholm was glaringly evident to the point where the lone black man in the park was conspicuous by his presence. People watching was clearly the spectator sport of choice here.

    This is a park in the middle of the city. It is a nice place to visit all year round as a tourist or a local. In winter there is an ice-rink where you can rent ice-skates or bring your own and skate around a statue. In summer there is a nice fountain where kids play in and adults sit around. There are also some coffee-stands for the people who would like a "fika" or a drink. The best time to visit is during mid- or late-April when the cherry-blossoms are blooming. Truly a nice view. All in all a nice place to visit, sometimes a little too crowded but when you are in the neighborhood a must-visit.

    A place that brings life to this part of Stockholm. A bit dead the day we visited due to bad weather but this park has a lot to offer during the year. Both at winter as well as summer. The closeness to the central railway station, metro, busses and trams makes it easy to reach and the closeness to the water and all the boats makes it even more special. If close, pass by and see if something special is going on!

    we found this gardens when looking for the ice skating ring at night so we could not see that much about the park but the experience on the ice ring was very good with a lot of falls and fun.

    It is in the very core of Stockholm so it is of course surrounded by traffic hustle and bustle, the shopping malls and whatever not is all around and the water is not really right next to it. Still ,a nice place for skating in winter or chilling out in summer.

    Kungstradgarden Park (The "King's Garden") is a very popular meeting place. The metro train station is only a short distance away, which means that the park is easy to reach from all parts of Stockholm. The park is the city's oldest park and started life as the royal kitchen garden in the 15th century. It is surrounded by trees with a fountain in the middle. The park is very relaxing, centrally located, and there is a wide variety of cafés and restaurants nearby. At the time of my visit the temperature was quite high and the park fairly quiet however, the park is well known for the wide range of activities that it attracts. A very nice park with plenty of seating, a great place to people watch.

    I happened to accidentally find Kungstradgarten park when looking for a tram to take me over to another part of Stockholm, but stopped there as there was a lively Oktoberfest celebration going on. It's a quaint park, even without Stockholm's frequent events, and there is so much to do in the immediate area. Definitely could spend a day there.

    Great place all year long, with cafes, restaurants and often events. In winter there's an ice skating rink. Make sure to visit the metro station there as well.

    I visited in November and it has already snowed a little, the weather was cold and ice skating is a great entertainment. Although it was plenty of people by the time I went, it's free if you have your skates, renting is worth it, but be aware they are going to be extremely uncomfortable.

    In the middle of central Stockholm you will find this small park. Cafés, restaurants, music events and more. Fantastic place in the spring when cherry blossoms bloom. Just like Japan.

    Nice place to walk and see the statues and fountain or sit and rest. Kids liked it there too, although there wasn't a playground. It did sook like a garden a bit.

    Kungsträdgården (The King's Garde) used to be a real Royal Garden. Now it's a great place to see things and watch people. Lined with trees, cafes and galleries. Today the sun was out so we went here for some coffees in the afternoon. Very relaxing

    If you want to relax or go to an open bar in the open air come and visit this place. Pleasant environment to spend a hot day.

    Great park just a short distance from the royal palace. Was told that in days gone by it was where the royal gardens were - food gardens. Nice and clean and open. Green spaces, impressive statues and water fountains. We rode the lions and just enjoyed the park and the people.

    Great place for a stroll - surrounded by restaurants and people just enjoying the evening. The evening we were there, there was a folk festival with traditional music and dancing. A pleasant place to just enjoy the evening.

    This is a beautiful park offering beautiful plantatons as well as great events and music most of the time for the price of nothing.

    I just stopped by in my way to Royal Theater. I think it is not must visit place. While I was in Park, there was Stage Academy in the park. So it was nice to listen some live music. If you see some event in park, you should stop by. Otherwise don't bother to visit park.

    Kings Park is centrally located in Stockholm, Sweden and with its outdoor cafes and beautiful surrounds makes it one of the most popular hangouts and meeting places in Stockholm for locals and tourists alike. It make for a very relaxing walk.

    It's nice to walk through, but if you don't have to be in the neigbourhood, don't bother. We passed it on our way to Gamla Stan.
