‘Aarhus Park’ is a vision plan that takes into account the needs of Aarhusians for an inclusive, democratic, and accessible Kongelunden Aarhus. A path connection, the loop, connects the area’s current and new activities and attractions with each other and contributes to a new story about Aarhus. The project works actively with all benchmarks to create a holistic vision for the future of Kongelunden.
To connect the different zones in Kongelunden Aarhus, the project focuses on transforming the existing traffic routes and adapting them to soft road users (cyclists, pedestrians, etc.). The purpose is to limit private car traffic, promote public transport and more ‘muscle power’, as Marie Laursen would say. The lost parking spaces in Kongelunden will be replaced with parking options close to the various entrances.
The vision plan proposes a loop connection that goes through all zones and not only connects all current residence and activity opportunities but also opens new ones. The purpose is to invite all Aarhusians and tourists to discover Kongelunden as a place close to the city. Development takes place with a focus on creating ‘one overall destination in Aarhus’ and promoting ‘modern frameworks for events within sports, culture and business.
