Mølleparken

Mølleparken (Lit. The Mill Park) is a park in the city of Aarhus located in Midtbyen. Mølleparken was constructed in 1926 where the, by then obsolete, mills of the city had been situated by the river since 1289. Today the park lies by the Aarhus River and the ARoS Art Museum and functions as a section of a pedestrian arterial from ARoS to the Latin Quarter.

Mølleparken was extensively redesigned in 2006-2008, as part of the opening of the Aarhus River and now contains large areas for public recreation and facilities for street sports, including basket ball, panna, table tennis and concrete board game tables for playing chess, backgammon and checkers.

Eleven busts of notable Danish authors line the northern section of the park, namely Steen Steensen Blicher, Marie Bregendahl, J. P. Jacobsen, Johannes V. Jensen, Jakob Knudsen, Thøger Larsen, Jacob Paludan, Henrik Pontoppidan, Johan Skjoldborg, Harry Søiberg and Jeppe Aakjær. The bronze sculpture of "Elskovskampen" (the lovemaking battle) by Johannes Berg from the original park is still on display and in 2014, the kinetic sculpture Snake by Phil Price was placed here too, after acquisition by the city council. The council bought the sculpture after it received the highest rating from guests at the Sculpture by the Sea, Aarhus 2013 art festival in Tangkrogen.
