The city park of Lysekil

Birds and Bees, right in the city centre

The city park was built in the 1860s and is the largest park of the city. The oldest trees in the city park are said to have been planted in the mid 1800s. The park is blooming in spring and summer and many events are held here, including Allsång i Stadsparken, a classic swedish sing-along night, which attracts many visitors.

In the middle of the park is the large granite relief "Bohuslänsk krönika" by the artist Ivana Machackova, which was installed on October 12th, 2013. It is a large work consisting of six large stone blocks of 30 tons of granite. It represents Bohuslän's 4000-years long history from the Bronze Age through the Viking and Middle Ages, the herring period, the stone industry and today's society.

The city park of Lysekil has gained new little inhabitants that will make the park even more beautiful by pollinating all the flowers. A new demonstrative bee hive has been placed on the top of the hill in the city park. Through a glass window you can see how the bees build their honeycomb. Welcome to the hill to learn more about the bees. Also enjoy enjoying the beautiful view of the Gullmarsfjord.

In the park there are also two hammocks hanging between the trees, where you can relax all day long. In addition, there are information signs about trees and plants, for those interested.
