  • if you wanted to have view of the pleasant natural view, this place will provide you better feeting, you will also find countryside fine structures, pollution free green view 
  • Castle Woods was my playground when I was a child, here I learned ride, here we walked with our dogs, here I've been, and fed the animals hundreds of times and I have started 13 times in the göteborgsvarvet. To which I will return again and again and I do that there is almost everything there. Are you interested in animals range from penguins and seals to ducks, sheep, goats, horses, deer and moose. Some times they have pony rides at other times, you get to see the feeding of animals. The best part is that everything is so available and free! What the costs are if you need to eat or go to the Museum of natural history. Here you go looking to see a place where the people themselves are happy to be back and returned to several times per year

  • A lovely oasis in the middle of town. Just lounge around or picnic on a blanket or play with a ball ... But even in the winter it's nice to just walk around and enjoy the tranquility. The children's zoo and the Zoo are appreciated for the little ones. Penguins and seals also ... Here, I am always calm. Many places and benches to sit on. Villa Belparc for some food or Cafe for a cup of coffee. But ideally, I take with me the thermos and put me on a bench at the top of the mountain.

  • Very nice place to walk around in ,good place to get away from the stress in the city's
  • Wonderful park area in downtown Gothenburg. If you're lucky with the weather it's definitely worth a visit especially if you haven't seen some of the animals they have at the zoo. Especially fun for kids is the small petting zoo they have, exclusive for kids! There are also plenty of restaurants in and around the park to enjoy a Swedish fika.
  • Amazing spacious park. Big playground for children and the cafe/bar close by the lake has some very cosy seats close by the water.
  • Best place in Gothenburg to bring a grill and enjoy nature. Also great place for running or strolling around. Very popular with families.
  • A beautiful park in Gothenburg. There's no shortage of trails here, and the views are lovely. There's also penguins, seals, moose and other animals to view (for free) and lots of places to take pictures, have a picnic or just relax.
