Trolle-Wachtmeisters park

Trolle Wachtmeisters park is a park in Lund, Sweden. In 1928, the park appeared for the first time in a city plan proposal by city engineer Magnus Wennström. The park land was to be made available free of charge by the Manor of St. Peter's Monastery, owned by the heirs of Count Axel Trolle-Wachtmeister. During this time, the land was still arable land, and it was not until the late 1930s that the park was completed, with ornamental planting as well as a sandpit and paddling pool for the children.
