Vasaparken is located in the middle of the Vasastan-district, close to both S:t Eriksplan's and Odenplan's subway stations. The park is a beloved oasis for inner-city Stockholmers and has a soccer pitch, jungle gym, and a green lush environment that received the Siena Prize in 2007; Architects Sweden's award for landscaping. In other words, there are lots of places for a picnic or an ice cream break. During winter there's an ice skating rink located here.
At Vasaparken's northeastern end you'll find Astrid Lindgren's terrace, close to Dalagatan where she lived. Dalagatan which, by the way, movie buffs probably recognize from the Swedish Noir classic The Man on the Roof. Adjacent to the park you'll also find Sven Harry's Art Museum.
