The Parrot

Copenhagen, Denmark

You can run and climb on the outside of the parrot. Children can whoop it up on the large inclined deck covering the parrot’s tail. The parrot is furthermore equipped with a double slide.


Skydebanehaven used to be the shooting range for the Copenhagen Shooting Society. The society was a gallery for upper middle-class members, who competed in hitting wooden parrots on stakes.

When looking at the brute fortress-resembling gate to Skydebanehaven in Copenhagen you wonder what it leads to.

Most of all, it looks like a scene from a movie with knights and princesses. However, on the other side of the gate you find Vesterbro’s secret green oasis with room for both strolling senior citizens and playful children.
