Fælledparken in May.
Rescue helicopter from the Danish Air Force transports patient to Rigshospitalet. The big building is the headquarters of the Danish Order of Freemasons.

The park Fælledparken in Copenhagen, Denmark, was created 1906–1914 by landscape architect Edvard Glæsel in cooperation with the Copenhagen Municipality on the commons (Danish: fælled) previously named Nørrefælled and Østerfælled.

Fælledparken is used for activities such as:

  • Walking
  • Sunbathing
  • Running
  • Playgrounds
  • Soccer training and matches on the courts marked on the grass
  • The cafe Pavillonen
  • Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix (auto racing with old cars)
  • 1 May: Labour Day demonstration, with speeches by politicians
  • Concerts and celebrations such as carnival

Fælledparken lies adjacent to Parken, the Danish national stadium.

The southern part of Fælledparken was sometimes used by rescue helicopters from the Danish Air Force when transporting patients to Rigshospitalet. This practice was abandoned in the year 2006 with the construction of a helicopter platform on the roof of Rigshospitalet.[1]
