With views stretching for miles over the southern district of Lake Vättern, the city park is just five minutes by bus from the city centre. The city park is a beautiful nature area in Jönköping for all ages. The park has an exciting maze, picnic areas, bird ponds, animal pastures, and mini golf.

There is also the unique Bird Museum with a collection of approx 1400 stuffed birds of 341 species and an egg collection with approx 2500 eggs, as well as an Open Air Museum to which old buildings have been moved. In the summer, the county museum usually moves into the houses and opens them for different activities.

The Open Air Museum’s history began in 1901 when the engineer Algot Friberg bought the Bäckaby medieval wooden church and moved it to Jönköping City Park. Eventually more older buildings were brought to the park and the open air museum was born.
