In Oskarshamn, there is a lot of fun activities for the hole family. You can pet Pelle the pig at Fallebo farm, play in the sea or go on an adventure to one of many playgrounds.
The themed playground
Here you can play on the pirate ship, splash with water play, or ride on the cableway or one of the many slides. Drive the big play car or climb on the pyramid. There are small climbing frames for young children, and the ground is covered with a rubber surface so the children don’t get scrapes if they fall. An oasis for young and old. The playpark is always open and free of charge.
Adventure water park, Arena Oskarshamn
There are two fast slides, one traditional 45 metre-long slide and one Space Bowl with a drop of 8 metres for the most daring. In the children’s lagoon, young children can splash in a water landscape with animals that spray water. The beach and activity pool are separated by a bridge. One side is for fun and games with floating toys and the other has a sloping bottom and is suitable for those who are less confident in the water. There is also a bubble sofa, a water cannon and a geyser.
Oskarshamn City Library
Everyone is welcome at the library to read, play and develop. There is a cosy play corner, a range of games and occasional story times. There is also a small café in the library and knowledgeable staff who are happy to give book suggestions.
Welcome to the newly renovated cinema complex with three auditoriums of different sizes. It sells warm popcorn, hot snacks, sweets and a range of drinks, and there are films for all ages as well as an opportunity to be enchanted by the world of film. Booster cushions for young children are available in all the auditoriums.

Fallebo Gård enjoys a scenic location by Havslätt exercise area. Today, the farm has hens, the miniature pig Pelle, guinea pigs, horses, rabbits and sheep. The farm is open to visitors who are free to wander in the pastures and on the footpath. There is an information board at the farm showing the pastures and footpaths.
Stensjö By will take you a long way back in time. A landscape shaped by centuries of haymaking and grazing that is still managed partly in the traditional way. There are sheep, horses, cows, hens and pigs in the pastures for you to visit! The setting was used for the Astrid Lindgren films about the Children of Noisy Village. Many of the scenes were shot directly in the village or on the roads around the village. A perfect place to visit with a packed hamper. There is a nice lake by the village that is perfect for a swim.
At Arena Oskarshamn, the football pitch is turned into a bandy rink in the winter, and there’s plenty of time for the public to skate. The ice rink at Be-Ge Hockey Center also has times for the public to skate. Bring your skates and helmet and you can skate as much as you like. There are also aids for those who would like to learn to skate and goals for those who want to play ice hockey or bandy.
Hjortberget is a centrally located ski facility in Oskarshamn with ski hire for downhill skiing. In the winter, the slope is filled with snow from the snow cannons and there is a lift to take you up the slope. Naturally, there is also space for sledges and toboggans and other fun on the slope. A barbecue area is available if you fancy a classic hot dog to top up your energy levels.
