Herastrau is the main park in the North of the city and is full of play park areas for children of all ages as well as other activities like boating on the lake and hiring bikes in the summer. There is a boat that sails between one side of the park and the other.  The large park is also a great place for walking or running as well as cycling. In the Spring and Autumn there are often activities taking place at weekends in the park, for example the Swedish festival of culture and the Race for Cure took place in the park in June 2015.

Transport: There is parking near-by although this can get busy.  The nearest Metro is Aviatolior and a number of buses run alongside the park.

Food/drink:  there are a number of kiosks in the park and small cafes. Near by but outside of the park on the soutern-side there is a City Grill. On the western side of the park near the lake there is the Hard Rock Cafe.
