Lillskogen is Mariebergsskogen’s own little zoo, home to all kinds of Swedish farm animals, including adorable rabbits, little ponies, cute potbelly pigs, goats and calves. Chickens roam the Stallbacken yard freely and scratch in the gravel. The animal house for small creatures has polecats, guinea pigs, hamsters and rats. It also has exotic birds as well as aquariums of colourful fish from around the world. Ducks and geese swim around the duckpond. On cold winter’s days, the animals are housed in the stables, where a warm welcome awaits visitors.

The animals at Lillskogen are looked after by students of animal care at Lillerud upper secondary school.
