Going over the river after water is not the wisest. That was why today's trip to the Dag Hammarskjold Park. I have shunned it because I have only seen a gravel bike path that passed next to a 90 road with heavy traffic.
Dag Hammarskjold Park is the name of the green area, just off the ring road in Ystad. Having a natural area near the city is a benefit. But for those looking for an undisturbed and quiet nature experience will be a disappointment. For those who are pressed for time and want to take a walk, it is however perfectly. Likewise, for those who do not have access to a car.
The area is very easy to get around both by bicycle and on foot. There are some beautiful views. There were coots who had kids. Likely to be able to stand and look at them was not because they like to hide in the bushes to avoid prying eyes. There was also a small area that went off the road and then it was much quieter and calmer.
On the map, you'll find it here .
A salmon is not something you encounter every day. But in Tomelilla there is one. It has also built up a little viewing platform where you can sit and look at the steps.
The easiest way to find it here if you park in the late Algatan, otherwise you can park at the Sports and walk the fine running tracks about a kilometer along the river. The walk passes through an area called forest slope. A green oasis for those who live in Tomelilla. Anyone who wants to see a salmon jump should come here in autumn.
Today I decided to go to another one of all the places that are left to discover. It was a trip to Orup Almskog. Or if you're going to be accurate Almskog, meadows and kärr.Reservatet is a model clear parking, toilets and walking trail. There is a red wire and one white. The red goes through almskogen and the white in the meadows and the marsh. By combining the two in order to be a delightful experience.
I started to follow the red marks through almskogen. Although many trees succumbed because of illness, it is a fine experience. As one moves up a slope will look straight into one of the beautiful foliage. A so this gorgeous spring day, there was the little birds to watch for.
Because the area is quite small so you can go slowly and stop and listen and watch a lot. After a while it crosses a road, then, will it just out in the meadows. Here, I chose to switch to the white marker and turned to the left. There were some flowers to stop and consider. Next time you have to think of is when you arrive at the bridge at the small river that runs past. Either you go over the river, but risks missing the swamp. Otherwise, we will follow the white markers away from the river.
On the whole, then I would say that this was one of the better places I've found. Varied, accessible and beautiful.
