The park is 9.884 acres of open grassy fields, clay covered event spaces and a part of the coastline, used as a berthing area for small recreational boats such as kayaks and dinghys. The park is the main event venue in Aarhus and it is divided between different areas designed for different purposes. The central area is dubbed Cirkus Pladsen (Circus Square), is a 2700 acres clay covered venue frequently used by travelling circuses, markets and other events that require fixed structures or heavy machinery. Adjacent to it is 3400 acres of grassy fields designed for durability and smaller structures such as tents. The park is bounded by 3707 acres of grassy recreational areas with trees and bushes mainly intended for daily low intensity use.[1]

The park includes water fountains in different areas, sewers and public toilets and is rated to host up to 20.000 visitors. There are 500 adjacent parking spaces and it lies close to public transport from Strandvejen, Chr. Filtenborgs Plads and Hans Broges Gade. The park has through the years been host to many of the largest events in Aarhus including the annual solstitial celebration celebrations, Sculpture by the Sea, circuses, the Food Festival, fairs, markets, festivals and concerts.[4][5][6][7][8][9]
