  • Always beautiful to see the seasons change in this park that is full of beautiful flowers, different bed, herbs, vegetables and shady tree groves. Visit one of the greenhouses and look at more exotic touches from around the world. Round off with home-made bread, coffee, juice, cakes and sandwitcher Café in the Centre of the Park. Always lively, but you can still find a it was lovely quiet here!

  • Greta for a walk or cycle on a sunday! I went in spring and it was lovely, I think Summer and Autumn would be fantastic. Great for exploration days in the city.
  • Easily one of the nicest free botanical gardens out there. A wide variety of plants from across the world to look at, and a really nice glass house. I was astounded.
  • Norges fineste hage! Anbefaler å gå innom huset med tropiske planter.
