Soundscapes of Norrköping (5)
Walking straight forward towards the center of Norrköping there is a park called Carl Johans park, after the Swedish king with the same name. It is quite a tranquil park with a large fountain in the centre, and a little ways up lies a cactus plantation. Even though this soundscape is barely a hundred meters away from the earlier one, it is quite different since the trees work as sound barriers, removing much of the noise from the traffic. Instead almost nothing can be heard apart from people walking on the gravel or the fountain.
