  • A most beautiful place and gem, a calm haven of fine esthetics for those who wish to get away from the city. One of the best playground concepts I have ever seen for younger children...simply lovely.
  • One of Gothenburg's garden parks. A calm place in the center of the city, excellent for a stroll with company or by yourself. The rosary and the greenhouse "Palmhuset" are equally soothing for your mind and well worth a visit, even if only to escape the traffic and bustling streets for a moment.
  • You can see a lot of flowers in the garden.. Almost hundreds or even a thousand more type of flowers. You could see a lot of tropical plants and dessert plants in the glass houses. It's a big park, and in the summer sometimes they have musical shows inside the park. Free entrance!
  • Nice park with a cool greenhouse. All of the plants I could see are clearly labelled too.
  • An awesome set of greenhouses with flora seen only in tropical sights. It's great to either just walk around or to sit and work/study /relax
