Gorgeous park with views of the town. Many structures which served as living quarters and smokehouses from the middle ages. Nice food service area. Every town should have a nice park like this one!

The park is nice, with old buildings, a small playground and a café. My wife is from Skien, and she pointed out it used to be much nicer, it seems like budgets for keeping the park in shape have been cut. The park often features shows and other family-activities. The café is actually quite reasonably priced by norwegian standards, and... More
