SLU Kunskapsparken

An educational park with a wide diversity of plants

 
 

The new Campus Ultuna, which is part of the Swedish University of Agricultural sciences (SLU), has slowly but surely taken shape. The Knowledge Garden forms part of the area and acts as a 20,000 square metre textbook on the subject of Landscape Architecture. The garden is also used for recreation and entertainment. The garden has many different characters; here you will find a great variety of plants, plant arrangements, ground materials and equipment. There are also a variety of garden-related experiments and during the vegetation period different teachers and researchers hold talks on topical issues.

The southern part, Staden, is the entrance to the garden. The character of the area is more formally speaking environments and vegetation that fit urban contexts. Through Staden, you then come into Trädgården, an open area with freer forms dominated by beautiful hedges and flowerbeds with perennials. Further north is the experiment field Odlingen with among other things a test facility for alternatives to lawns and a rosarium.

Next to Trädgården is the Ullbo Woodland Garden, enclosed by hedges, with a variety of interesting plants, primarily for shadier locations. It is possible to book guided tours.
