I always notice that whatever park I am in in Stockholm, people are drinking. Beer, wine in a box, cider kool-aid are the beverages of choice.
When I first looked online at Stockholm’s official site, their information was totally outdated, by years. That was not helpful.
This year however, they got it together and have posted where it is legal and not to drink.
Either way, the chance of a police office actually finding you and fining you for illegal drinking is almost nothing. Just don’t ever drink near a school (that is always illegal), be underage, or completely drunk.
The one time the police stopped us, they said we shouldn’t drink in this particular park but being midsommar, it was okay. Aren’t the police generous?!
Some parks are not governed by the city and some parks don’t have alcohol times but residents in the area may self impose restrictions. Be sure to check the park for alcohol rules.
Here’s the list of every park I could find:
Innerstan, Östermalm, Norrmalm:
Lejonparken – Alkoholförbud mellan kl. 22.00-07.00 perioden 30 april till och med 15 juni.
Lappkärrsbadet – Alkoholförbud mellan kl. 22.00-07.00.
Brunnsvikens strandbad – Alkoholförbud mellan kl. 22.00-07.00.
Rålambshovsparken – Alkoholförbud mellan kl. 00:00-07:00. Om Parkteaterns föreställningar varar längre än till kl. 00.00 är det tillåtet att dricka alkohol.
Smedsuddsbadet – Alkoholförbud mellan kl 00:00-07:00.
S:t Göransparken – Alkoholförbud under alla tider
Kristinebergsparken – Alkoholförbud mellan kl 00:00-07:00.

Skinnarviksparken – Alkoholförbud mellan kl. 00:00-07:00 på hela Skinnarviksberget.
Tengdalsparken – Alkoholförbud under alla tider
Vitabergsparken – Alkoholförbud mellan kl. 00:00-07:00 i hela Vitabergsparken.
Fåfängan – Alkoholförbud mellan kl. 00:00-07:00.
Tantolunden & Drakensbergsparken – There’s no information about either park from Polisen or the city website.
I have a feeling that Tanto is still privately owned and the parks recreation does not fall under the city jurisdiction. It was privately owned but was given to the city many years ago. You can drink there without restrictions but the colony residents and park goers are known to have scuffles.
Liljeholmstorget & Trekanten – Alkoholförbud under alla tider
Am I missing any other parks? Let me know and I’ll try to get information for it. You can also download this map that Stockholm created.
Wait, there's more to read!
