Welcome to Katrinelunds Garden

A city garden in the north of Sweden in the region of Medelpad

Katrinelund’s Garden is an inspirational garden which since summer 2019 is season open during weekends. The garden is located in Sundsvall, in the landscape Medelpad in the northern part of Sweden.

The garden was 2017 awarded the Most Beautiful Garden of the year in Sweden by the magazine Drömhem and Trädgård.

The history behind the name
The residence building was built in 1886 and named Katrinelund after the wife in the house. There is a rich local history surrounding the property, among other things Katrinelund is a origin property in the Haga residential area. Giving the garden the name Katrinelunds Garden was an easy choice as we like to lift the historical context.

An inspiring and realxed atmosphere
We want vistiors to be inspired and feel at home when they visit the garden. The atmosphere is relaxed, cosy and the garden works as a big, green living room where you can sit down and have a fika or just stop for a while and take a pause. 

The Garden
The garden is largely made up of perennials but there is also a year-round green frame in the form of cut hedges. The base of the garden is a grown-up tree that gives structure and height. A large number of flowering plants are grown in pots, including tulips in spring and dahlias in summer.

The Café
In the garden there is a cafe with homeande cookies and sourdough bread. We choose organic as much as possible.

We have our own coffee, Katrinlunds Garden coffee, a blend that comes from the classic Ido Coffee roastery, which is Sundsvall’s oldest store that still exists and has been operating in the same premises since it opened in 1931. 

The Shop
In the garden shop you find plants and garden related things for a sustainable  life in the garden.

Accessability

Is the garden accessible?
Partially. The garden is on a slope with natural level differences but it is possible to get around the garden without having to go up stairs. A continuous walkway has hard ground where it works with walker and wheelchair, while different rooms in the garden have gravel floors where it is more difficult to reach with walker och wheelchair.

In wheelchair or have walker? – Contact Us!
Since there is a significant level difference between the walkway at the entrance and up to the garden, there is a staircase there. This means that the main entrance is not possible to use if you have a wheelchair or have difficulty going up stairs. Contact us before the visit and we will arrange for you to enter the garden via our private entrance instead. Call: +46 73 522 10 10 (Charlotte) or send an email: charlotte.andersson@gardenflow.se

Can I bring the dog to the garden?

No, unfortunately not. However, it is usually possible to bring the dog to the area connected to the entrance and around the garden house (but not up to the garden). Always check with us first before you bring the dog in.
