Dating back to 1880 or so, Leopoldpark is located at the site of a previous zoo and botanical garden.   It contains a number of rare trees and animals as a result, and some unusual statues.   There is a swimming statue, there is the statue of fat Matilda, and there is an elegant mermaid statue.  map
