A small park that looks like you are in a Danish community, surrounded by houses and other establishments. The park is ideal for a short walk probably after enjoying the other sights of Solvang. There is a playground for kids.

The park is open around 7am to 8pm and free to enter. It has a cute entrance which can be used by both cars and people. There is a nice 1.3 mile loop that makes for a great trail/park run. Although the signs say it's used for both people & horses, the trail was very clean and we never needed... More

This is a great place to walk in Solvang. Solvang is a great place that looks like you are in Scandinavia, right in California!

Small park, but very nice to get away. Short hiking trail - not too steep - used by horses and people. Playground for kids, tennis courts, skatepark, picnic tables. Easy walk from the main part of Solvang. Nice to get away from just shopping and eating sometimes.

This is really a good small town to stop by, and the cookies there are good, buildings are very impressive.

Walking all streets of Solvang (translated: Sunny Field) is a wonderful experience in this Danish town/city. Very clean and interesting buildings.

A little bit uncertain of how to react to the place - went on a recommendation - but not sure that I will echo that recommendation. Too touristy. Went to the park as this can often offer some respite, and it was a nice spot, but we left after Solvang after about ten minutes. Not our scene.

Must stop here to see the windmill and enjoy the culture of the area. Lots of shops to go through and many good eats.

We were super confused by the pictures posted as from this park on trip advisor! They are mostly pictures of downtown Solvang, not The park. The park itself has a castle like entrance but then it just a regular city park! It is near the grade school and is a nice little park but not at all as pictured.
