Protecting urban greenery: the case of Stockholm's National City Park

Abstract [en]

This paper analyzes two phases of the history of the National City Park in Stockholm: the process preceding formal park establishment and the ongoing place construction following park establishment. With thematic narrative analysis, I show that constructing the National City Park as a “place” relied on considerable abstraction. Similarly, the construction of the park's uniformity relied on an organizing principle that eliminated many entities and activities from the narrative of the place. This case study also demonstrates that “nature” might need allies in the endeavor to protect urban greenery. The framing of the narrative in historical and cultural heritage terms was a key factor in the effort to protect the National City Park from urban development.
