Gyldenrisparken is a concrete block estate located on the island Amager, Copenhagen South. It features 477 homes, a residential home for elderly people, child care institutions, and a small square with shops. In the middle there are big, green recreational areas with playgrounds and sport facilities. The estate is a public housing division, owned by Lejerbo Köbenhavn. All homes are lodgings.

Socials problems and physical damages made the municipality create a comission to make a master plan for upgrading the estate. An 'idea shop' in the form of an exhibition was held in 2003 to involve inhabitants in the renovation process, and there has been an architect competion for the design of new public amenity buildings. There are plans to put around 50 of the smallest flats together. The architecture offices Witraz and Vandkunsten are working on the renovation.
