Nature, parks and green spaces

Large continuous green spaces, lakes, watercourses, parks and green corridors offer Stockholm residents close and easy access to greenery.

Just over half of the municipality’s area consists of greenery, and the City has several nature reserves, a cultural reserve and large parts of the Royal National City Park. Stockholm’s unique green values are important for the quality of life enjoyed by Stockholmers. They contribute to a vibrant and safe city, as well as reducing the risks of climate impact.
