Plikta is a very popular playground in Gothenburg. It is also the city’s first excursion playground – an exciting and stimulating setting that encourages young and old alike to play and try different activities. There are unique climbing frames, chessboards, an outdoor gym, table tennis tables, access-adapted play equipment, barbecue facilities and a 15 m long whale to play in and climb on. There are staff on site almost every day to arrange games and activities for children aged 6 to 16 years.

The nature playground lets children enjoy playing, discovering and learning more about nature. It’s built to fit in with its natural surroundings, both in its equipment and in the choice of materials in its actual construction.

The barefoot trail is a 300-metre sensory path across several different kinds of surfaces.
