The organisation for Saving, Caring and Showing The Royal National City Park
The Royal National City Park – the world’s first national urban park – is situated in the municipalities of Stockholm, Solna and Lidingö. The Royal National City Park was founded 1995. It offers a unique mixture of nature and culture. It is located right in the middle of the metropolitan region of Stockholm and it is important for the recreation of hundreds of thousands of city residents.
On our website we present the fantastic environment in The Royal National City Park, its history and the work we do in safeguarding, maintaining and displaying the unique natural and cultural values that The Royal National City Park embodies.
Our activity guide offers the around 50 member organisations and other stakeholders in The Royal National City Park an opportunity to list different events in their own programmes.
The maps – both the general survey maps and the detailed maps – of the various areas in The Royal National City Park have been highly praised. They are the work of Ann Nyström.
