  • 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.
