About
Kildeparken is one of the oldest parks in Aalborg, as it was landscaped in 1802. The beautiful park is known for its long list of classical pieces by famous artists, who have created both statues, scultpures and fountains. The most famous piece in the park is the Park of Music, which is a collection of trees that have been planted since 1987 by artists who have performed in Aalborg Culture and Congress Center. Most of these trees can be activated to plays three different tunes of the artists, who includes, among others sir Cliff Richard, Sting, Kenny Rogers, Take That, Rod Stewart and sir Elton John. The charming park is hosting a string of events each year. The largest annual event in Kildeparken is by far the carnival of Aalborg in May, which attracts most than 20.000 guests to a huge party in Kildeparken. Moreover, it is the place for childrens activities with a modern playground, or a separate childrens carnival in May each year.

We were in the area and decided to eat our picnic lunch in the park. It was interesting to walk around and hear some of the music but we were sad when some of the speakers weren't working. Recommend a quick visit if you are in this corner of the city already but not really worth the trip if it's far. We spent only 15 minutes walking around before we were ready to leave.

Calm and tranquil Park blended with iconic singers' music
Jul 2019
This is a place that I recommend you to visit at least once in a life time, if you are fancy with UK / US popular singers in the 70s - 90s. The idea is to have invited those iconic great singers to plant a tree in the park, accompanied with a music box that you could hear 3 songs of theirs respectively, by simply pressing a button of the box.

It is a precious and special venue in Denmark, so i invited to go there some day, if you belongs to those generation.

You could see a lot of art works in the surrounding, too. But of course, green green green is the main theme, and for charity, cheers.

Every city should have one of these!
Dec 2019
Wandering out of the underpass beneath Aalborg station was greeted by the site of all these trees with “things” in front of them. At first thought this was a possibly memorial for resistance fighters from the War or something similar but was pleasantly surprised to discover its true intention. Each tree planted by a musician, band, group or whatever; guess Dame Edna among others goes into that last category. Each box in front produces a snippet (or more) of the artist’s music on the press of a button. With many of the musical segments updated to reflect the festive period one can have great fun pressing buttons to create mega mashups such as Bob Dylan singing “Little Drummer Boy” accompanied by Acker Bilk on clarinet & ZZ Top on guitars. Hours of pleasure or pain depending on your musical taste!

Choose your own live music in the park
Jul 2019 • Couples
This is unique in my experience; it's just such a cool idea to let people remember who has played a gig in their town. Also great for the environment to have stars planting trees. When people have free access to jukeboxes like this the park becomes alive and you see people dancing without inhibitions to their favourite artist or just a random artist they didn't know before.
