“When Gothenburg’s residents were asked what change they wanted in Gothenburg to mark the 400th anniversary, many asked for more interconnected walking routes, better access to the water and more green areas and inviting public spaces. With Kvillestråket, we are contributing to achieving this vision,” says Petra Wernersson from the Parks and Landscapes Administration.
The new dance platform and the Blueways, Greeways and Oases “Kvillestråket” were inaugurated on the 31st of May with 17 dance routines, taster dance activities and outdoor exercise sessions. The route is 4 km long and stretches along Kvillebäcken between Frihamnen and Hökälla. The outdoor dance platform was requested by young girls, who helped to design it through a workshop. The dance platform is open to all members of the public who want to dance and play their favourite music.
The dance platform and walking route were inaugurated in hot summer weather, but this didn’t stop visitors from joining in the outdoor dancing and exercise activities. Other participants in the event were the Göteborg Opera, Hisingens Kulturskola, Kulturlabbet and many more.
