Not far from the centre of Alingsås we find Nolhaga, a big estate once aquired by Jonas Alströmer (see my first post about Alingsås) in 1725. The present manor house (a bit pretentiously called "slott"=palace) was built a bit later though (by another owner), around 1780. Since the 1920's the estate belongs to the town, and serves as public recreation park.
Here are some more views from around the park:
|Note the shape of the weather vane on the tower!|
|Mini pigs (for mini kids)|
|Meandering river with fountains, bridges and water lilies|
|Parking for boats|
