Why gli?

That's a bad mistake, please report it!

The correct sentence should be either

"A mio padre piacciono le mele." without "gli"

"gli" = "a lui" in this case, it would be like saying "A mio padre a lui piacciono le mele" and that's wrong.

To understand a bit better the function of "gli" as a particle, FAQ #11

And if you have problems with the verb "piacere" check the FAQ #10 as well.
