Wild nature and idyllic villages
Glostrup Municipality values all of its greenery. We have many nature reserves and parks, each with their own special character. No less than 40 % of the municipality consists of green areas.
We want our green areas to be beautiful, exciting and experientially rich places, with abundant and varied flora and fauna. And we wish our citizens and visitors to make good use of them.
The parks of Solvangsparken, Byparken, Rådhusparken and Præstegårdshaven are carefully tended. Here, visitors can enjoy the trees, flower beds and paths which surround the well-kept green lawns.
Most of the parks have playgrounds, which are popular with schoolchildren and families.
Egeparken contains a small lake and a pavilion with a barbecue site and a nature playground. Opposite it are other areas where you can enjoy fresh air and the hawthorn and cherry trees.
In the northern part of Glostrup you'll find Ejby Mose, which began as a peat bog and was later used as an infill area; form the 1960's on, however, the area was turned into a natural park with bogs, meadows and forests.
In summer a local shepherd minds the grazing sheep, which help to keep hogweed etc., in check.
The common aspect of these areas is that they ar allowed to grow relatively wild, which gives them a more rugged character.
Vestskoven is a fairly young forest, but already offers af wealth of experiences, such as the formidable view from the hill of Oxbjerget. The forest has many visitors all year round, both from the local area and from the entire Copenhagen region.
We expend many resources on creating and maintaining varies facilities for the public here, such as car parking, campfire sites, nature trails, bridle paths, etc.
The Lily Route
Glostrup's green areas are linked by the 13 km long Lily Route, marked by 29 red signs with white lilies.
Besides its extensive areas of natural greenery, Glostrup also possesses many other pleasant features: ponds, squares, water towers and green areas with flowers and benches.
Welcome to green Glostrup!
