Akalla park

Running along behind Kista, Husby and Akalla there is a valley containing a large park. This was a bit of a surprise - I'd found a bit of it before when I was exploring out from Kista but had thought it was just a childrens play area so didn't wander around much. Approaching from Akalla station it is obvious it is a large park. There are a number of attractions including Pony Riding and Minigolf. Both closed at this time of year.

Indeed, there do seem to be quite a disproportionate amount of abandoned stolen cars around this whole area, its not just in the park. I explained that I was going to put the photo up on the net and that I would explain what it was.
