Also worth seeing:
Strandmarkskirken, a church on Strandmarksvej consecrated in 1968.
Flats on Strandhavevej built in 1953-55 of precast concrete panels. A brand new construction technique at that time. A nice housing environment with variation and lots of details, light and space. By the architect Svenn Eske Kristensen.
"Papegøjehusene" at Engstrands Allé. Houses from the beginning of the 1950s, and also a precast construction by the architect Svenn Eske Kristensen. The houses started out in different colours, which gave them the funny nickname "Papegøjehusene" – the parrot houses.
Strandmarkskolen on Hvidovre Enghavevej, formerly a municipal school, and today a centre for local activities. It is run by a number of local associations.
Langhøjparken between Hvidovre Enghavevej and the school Langhøjskolen is named after a bronze age barrow. The barrow was built between year 1800 and 500 BC.
