A village pond in the big city

Even though Brønshøj is a part of the Copenhagen municipality, it still got some leftovers from the time when it was only a village near the big city. This village pond is one of them. These village ponds (gadekær in Danish) were originally used to water the cattle and as a place to get water during fires, but now they are only kept for recreational reasons.

There's nothing like finding one of these with the obligatory bench next to it and just sit down and relax for an hour or two.
