The Opera Park is a generous public park, centrally located in Copenhagen’s inner harbor and next door to The Royal Opera House. The purpose is to create a lush green space at the water’s edge where the hustle and bustle of everyday city life is put on hold and where nature and calmness take over. The park is a contemporary translation of classical English romantic gardens and will feature more than 80 different species of trees, plants and flowers - injecting an island of biodiversity into the city’s heart. The park’s centerpiece is a greenhouse, nestled into the trees, with a café and a vertical connection to the underground parking facility for 300 cars.
