This is Gothenburg's main park. See elks, Gotland ponies, Gute sheep and other Nordic animals in the park zoo. In the summer, there is a petting zoo with piglets and kid goats. Don't miss feeding time for the seals and penguins.
Much of the park is given over to natural parkland with native trees such as linden, beech, maple and various species of oak. The Dawn Redwood and stately Serbian spruce are a few examples of the more exotic plants on display. The azaleas are not native but have become famous in Slottskogen.
The petting zoo and pony rides are open from April to September.
