Consider something like

There is an obvious pedestrian route from the Blåbær Alle area to the Solbær Alle area.

Even if a router *did* consider using the edge of the landuse=grass area, it would be 
much too big a distance (about 30 times longer) and it would lead the unlucky OSM 
user away from the grass towards Højvænge Alle highway resulting in a much longer walk.
