Frederiksberg Municipality plans to rebuild part of Solbjerg Park Cemetery to create more park area near Copenhagen Zoo.
The cemetery is located next to Frederiksberg’s most famous parks, Frederiksberg Garden and Sondermarken.
It is surrounded by a marked 150-year-old red brick wall that may need to be relocated to meet plans.
Frederiksberg Municipality intends to start the renovation in mid-September, and it wants to get its residents involved.
Although it is eager to develop somewhere else for joint gatherings and activities, it maintains that it is important to give the graves and their visitors the greatest possible respect.
