”The park and the experiences are inspired by the surrounding cultural landscape; the meeting between the cultivated fields and the uncultivated nature”

Holbæk Sportsby (Active City) is a poetic and eventful park where people meet across age groups, backgrounds; where the pensioner and the tennis player, a sensory garden and the future skatepark can be found side by side. It is an example of a park where movement, activity and play all meet in a scenic setting. The landscape consists of several large facilities ranging from athletics and petanque fields to BMX hills and a riding path, as well as hybrid zones for unorganized sports like parkour.
Holbæk Sportsby provides an incentive to move, for example because a run can take place in the beautiful surroundings. The park and the experiences are inspired by the surrounding cultural landscape; the meeting between the cultivated fields and the uncultivated nature, which is also between rational and irrational thinking; structured and playful activities. This field of tension is what makes it interesting to spend time in the park. Loops connect the park’s area and functions that consist of a network of paths with a main path moving north to south. The facilities have gathered the area’s activities and created new communities.
