  • This place is like an oasis in Gothenburg. It has a lot to offer. Playground for the little kids are penalised, and large green areas for various activities. A good selection of restaurants, cafes, kiosks, o. May be short on parking spaces for events and good weather.

  • Since Älfsborgsmarschen goes through the park facility, one has been given plenty of time to observe the facilities and this is recommended everyone to visit. One is lucky can one see Otter play in the pool, too.

  • Sweden's most beautiful city park! Here you will find peace and quiet, but also entertainment on the scenic way. Large surfaces all relax, with sites for private moments with the packed picnic or barbecue. A go ' coffee (coffee) in one of the cafes are another obvious pleasure during the day or lunch in the restaurant. Discover the animals, birds, flowers and other like minded people at the walk around the Park. Collect a bunch of plays or motion, it's up to you what you want to do in this scenic spot in the city of Gothenburg.

  • Fantastic place to wander around in and enjoy nature and watch a few animals, the seals are always a favourite. Alternatively bring your picnic blanket and food to enjoy on many of the massive lawns. Plenty of space to spread out on.
  • A really nice place to just walk around and watch the people or go to the little zoo-like area and watch cute animals. Also a good.place for a picnic.
  • Great place to spemd your day if it's nice out. Plenty of spots to chill & relax. Also has a small free zoo wit moos, deer, & also penguins & seals. Not hard to get to either.
  • Amazing! Has a little zoo and some cafes around. Today (Friday), there's music playing in the park and later on a movie screening will happen. Food truck options and portapotties available.
  • A huge park held dear by the inhabitants. You'll see lots of families here and people jogging. There is also disc golf ( for free if you bring your own discs) and mini golf, some restaurants and café. Bikes and inlines are allowed. There are not too many toilets around so make sure to have your kids go in the ones at the entrance first? For families, Slottskogen has the country's biggest playground, which is very popular. It has swings, a huge slide, a small manual carrousel, jumping pits, a huge whale to climb inside, a water play area, a small train for younger kids and an indoor area with toikets and microwaves etc. On weekends and summer there aresupervised hours with staff that organise things for children and lend some activity toys. The bbq is burning and you can bring your own sausages or buy them cheap. The parque also has a small petting zoo, a pond with seals, some penguins and wildlife animals but all that takes some walking as the parque is rather large. In summer the area is often used for music festivals and a few times a year they organise running races in there. The area Linné that ends in the parque has a lot of restaurants and small boutiques, all quite expensive though. Enjoy!
