Copenhagen is Building Floating Parks

Copenhagen is already on our list of places to visit, but these innovative island parks just make us love the Danish capital that much more. Each handmade wooden platform will serve as a public space you can paddle out to. The first, CPH-Ø1, is a wooden structure with a single linden tree at its center. We imagine scoring many date points with a picnic on it. Dubbed a “Parkipelago,” the island serves as a place to chill in a city filled with hustle and bustle. There are more coming, however, and each will have something unique. A floating sauna is on the way. A swimming platform is on the docket. Even a fishing platform is set to be built. The floating islands can come together when weather is less than ideal so traveling between them isn’t much work. Put them on your “To Do” list the next time you’re in Denmark.
