  • This time I heard and some friends a Spring concert lying on a blanket on the lawn with a picnic basket. Great people, great weather.

  • A large park where you can walk in the beautiful nature, or why not sit down and have coffee at one of the many places you can do that? There are a lot of animals to visit the totally free. For example, penguins and seals. A great destination if you are in Gothenburg.

  • Slottsskogen is a huge park in Gothenburg. There are restaurants and a lot of animals to watch large areas to walk around on .... but quite hilly.

  • One of the best parks in Gothenburg. It's big and suitable for families. There is a playing area for children and an open zoo. Coffee shops and restaurants are available at certain points in the park. Recommended for a sunny day.
  • Very nice place to visit specially if you want to pass a good time in natural beauty.
  • very cozy, some nice places to eat and get coffee and a nice mini golf course!
  • Great place for kids and family. It has a nice outdoor play area with lots of equipment for kids like swings and slides. The long winding slide is the best, kids enjoy it the most.
  • A very nice, relaxing park. I highly recommend going here with plenty of time to spend walking around, looking at all the animals. Great place for families, with a playground, pony riding and opportunity to play with and pet goats.
