The European Day of Parks is celebrated since 1999. It was created in memory of the proclamation of the first national parks in Europe in Sweden. The first 9 national parks in Sweden were established in 1909. Today, Sweden has as many as 30 national parks.

European park day is an initiative by the EUROPARC Federation – the network for Europe’s natural and cultural heritage.
