Frognerparken is the biggest park in the central parts of Oslo. It is a popular recreational area for both its neighbours and people from other parts of Oslo. On a nice summer day, the park is full of people here you can go for a run, walk the dog, have a picnic or barbecue, play badminton or just do some sunbathing. Frognerparken has Norway's biggest collection of roses a total of 14,000 plants of 150 different species.

I have been told by local friends that they call this park "Nude park" due to multiple, obviously, nude sculptures. I loved visiting this park, every part comes with an story. For example, fountain with trees looking statues around is a great story of the circle of life. Well worth a visit

From the centre of Oslo you can take tram number 12 to Vigelands Park. Any 7/11 shop will sell you a tram day pass for Kr. 90. The park is full of fantastic sculptures from the Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland. 100% recommended, it's free and open 24/7.

Huge and amazing park, full of granite sculptures and beautiful fountains. Brilliant trees, flowers, and designs all over. This is the kind of park that would dwarf the gardens of Versailles. Definitely a must see when in Oslo.

Interesting place to visit ones . Didn't liked that they don't have any nice food around . We were tired and wanted to have lunch but no food so far . Интересное место для посещения . Странные монументы . Хорошее место для фото . Минус отсутствие ресторанов на территории парка. Хотели полноценный ланч , но ничего не нашли кроме сэндвичей... More

The park provides ample opportunity to have a pleasant stroll. There is a sculpture trail running through it's spine but also very nice flower displays. Entrance is free.

A very interesting sculpture park, however not for young children. Be warned the park is difficult for the less able bodied. The sculptures are very interesting about human life. A mix of stone and bronze.

An amazing sculpture park and a favourte for our visitors, best to take the tour and understnd the mindset in the design of the sculpures, it is not about the nackedness it is about being timeless. A wounderfiull park to spend the day

This park consists of numerous statues of naked people, but not in a pornographic way. The recurring theme is "life cycle". The Vigeland Park is named after the creator, Gustaf Vigeland. You can relax on the grass, bring a picnic basket or a ball, and the park is just perfect for a lazy summer day.

The park itself is quite big however the majority of Vigeland's sculptures are near the main entrance. The sculptures are very impressive both by scale and by beauty. The fountain is stunning. The Iron fences are great design too.
