We were two family's and a total of 10 people on spring day in February. They playground for kids was very big and open, not close to any roads or water and the walk in the park was nice with a lot of ducks for the children to look at.

Quiet park close to and surrounded by a river, where the city has made a public beach right in town.

I love this park, I used to walk there a lot while I was living in town and now when I have the chance I go for a walk. There are activities and concerts during the summer. They recently built a very nice place where you can take a bath and exercises.

From early spring to late autumn, the Bolougnerskogen park is a nice contrast to the inner city of Gavle. Minigolfing, fishing, a restaurant , kids playground and loads of beautiful scenery amongst the trees , green grass and bushes . Recently upgraded with a beach and outdoor gym, it is indeed well worth a visit.

I´m visiting this park almost every day, year around. I live nearby and I really love this park. It is so quiet and relaxing. You will find lots of trees, a small river, big green areas for picnic, a new beach with an outdoor-gym and much more. You can see the trees change color in autumn, play in the snow... More

A pretty park with palygrounds, mini-golf, café, beach, outdoor-gym and fields for playing football or just hanging out. A walk on the track around the park is 6 km long and it is popular among the residents of Gävle for walking and running all year round. In the winter you can feed the birds and look at the beautiful snowy... More

When in Gävle you have to visit the big park that has trails (paths) along the water. Small waterfalls and high trees makes you forget that you are almost in the centre of a big city. Haven't seen it in spring yet, but autumn is fantastic! Bring your camera.

A pleasant park close to the center of Gavle about 2 1/2km from the central station. There is a 6km walking/running path around it. Lots of trees, water and ducks. The area is bordered by a hydro electric dam and a weir so there are lots of water channels and areas to hang out and picnic. There are some nice... More

This Park is really a prefect place to relax and enjoy. Bring your own food or buy a sandwich in the cafe. You can let the children play in the grass or join them for a miniature golf. This year you can also swim in the river that pass the area. (If it's warm enough)
