Vognsbøl Park

Region of Southern Denmark  >  Denmark

Urban park in the heart of Esbjerg - a combination of lakes, streams and old broad-leaved trees. Good for common water- and forestbirds and an afternoon picnic.

There is a nice path system that runs by the series of lakes and streams and it is easy to get a good overview of the area.
