Bältespännarparken 2014Bältespännarparken
is the small park in between Trädgårdsföreningen and Stora Teatern. The park previously consisted of a round pond in the middle, but was rebuilt in 2014 to become a fountain with many jets of water and the pond became a slab on ground where the water sprinkles over.

The park came into being in the early 1800s when the Gothenburg fortifications demolished.


The Park has got it´s name after the sculpture of Johan Peter Molins "Bältespännarna" who was placed at it´s present place 1914. The pond was created during the late 1980s but was replaced in 2014 by a slab on ground where a fountain spreads its waters.
