‘The Flute Player’

In the eastern portion of Tivoli Park in Solna, Sweden, the large green areas all around suddenly transform into a similarly wild, but somewhat tamer looking park. This portion of Tivoli Park, known as “Piper’s Park” is actually an old English-style landscape park, designed by the man who brought English landscaping style to the country. And while this section of the park still bears his name, there is a small cherubic statue making the park’s name a bit more complicated. 

Piper’s Park was the brainchild of Fredrik Magnus Piper, Sweden’s foremost expert on the “English Garden.” Commissioned by Court Gustav Philip Creutz, Piper conceived of the park in the early 18th century.
