Park Cinema and Restaurant

Park is the favorite for many locals. Strömstad’s only cinema offers, apart from movies, fantastic pizzas and BBQ. With a central location on Skolgatan, a generous kid’s menu and a kitchen open until 23:00 it is well worth a visit!

Skylt på Lagunen i trä: Strandkanten. Dessutom prydnadsfåglar typiska för området runt Lagunen, Strömstad och i Bohuslän allmänt.
