Hisingsparken is Gothenburg's largest park. It contains most types of habitat but is dominated by rocky ground and pine forest. There are wetland areas such as Slätta Damm, Klare mosse and Gunnestorp's mosse. There are plenty of footpaths and trails in the park.
A visit at Kättilsröds gård is popular among families with children. It is located in the northern part of the park. It is a traditional farm with sheep, pigs, horses, chickens and rabbits. Here, you are welcome to walk around and watch the animals and the daily work on the farm. You can also bring your own picnic in the garden. On weekends, the self-service restaurant is open, and it is also possible to borrow a microwave to heat baby food. It takes about 20 minutes to come here with bus number 17, from Nordstan in central Gothenburg. If you arrive by car, you will find the parking at the entrance to the farm.
There are also horse-riding trails and various jogging tracks in the northern part of Hisingsparken. A little further south, there is a large adventure playground which is very popular with children to explore. At the highest peak in Hisingsparken, you will find a viewpoint, where you get a nice view of the city from a different angle.
At Slätta Damm, you can see ducks swimming in the pond and here you can also find a public grill area, a summer open café and several different jogging tracks and nature paths of varying lengths, from 2.8 to 11.1 kilometres. Many of the trails are lighted and work well to walk with the stroller. The entrance to Hisingsparken at Slätta Damm, is reached by bus number 25, about a quarter from Brunnsparken in central Gothenburg. If you come by car there is a parking right at the entrance.
