Play and swim in the middle of town! Just next to the Gothenburg’s Anniversary Festival you’ll find Jubileumsparken, a Public Bath and the outdoor playground Utflyktslekplatsen that invite you to sun, swim and lots of play. The harbor pool will, among other things, consist of a swimming pool with a slide as well as a jumping and diving pool. At the Utflyktslekplatsen, you can instead have a picnic in the green grass, play among twenty imaginative and colorful play sculptures or just stroll along the large deck by the water.
