The rain playground

Extra fun when it’s raining.

The playground in Renströmsparken is part of Rain Gothenburg – a project aimed to prepare the city for future downfalls, but also to make use of the rain’s potential to create unique experiences.

In the park Renströmsparken, by the pond Näckrosdammen, there is a playground that becomes extra fun when it’s raining. Ideas were collected from people of different ages living in Gothenburg, and then this rain playground was designed by 02landskap together with the artists Thomas Nordström and Annika Oskarsson. Here, you can jump around in puddles, take cover under leaf-shaped roofs, and use various swings and play structures.

– The unique thing about this playground is that new experiences are made possible when it rains, but of course it’s designed to attract people in all weathers, says project manager Emma Johansson, Parks and Landscape Administration, City of Gothenburg.
