Frogner Park (Vigeland Park unofficially with tourists) is one of those places I’ve been meaning to visit over the years but finally did it this trip. It’s a location to take your time with, to wander and ponder as you expolore the statues. It’s worth going first thing before the various coach tours unload and try and avoid those desperate to get photos on a 15min whistle stop tour. It’s also a great park to wander away from the statues and enjoy some quiet in the city and don’t miss the views over to Holmenkollen. The cafe near the front gates also a good place to rest and also has a small gift shop.

This is a very large park that was a lot of sculptures. The sculptures are without any name or description so it is fun to determine what you think they mean. The "angry boy" is the big crowd pleaser.

Sadly, the water in the fountains have been turned off to conserve water.

It is worth the trip - easy tram ride (#12) from the central train station in Oslo

This park was designed by Gustav Vigeland as a place to feature his sculptures. The park can be separated into four sections. The first section is the bridge which has sculptures on both sides of it depicting people in all stages of life. All of the sculptures are nude so they are not dated by the clothing styles. The highlights on the bridge are the Angry Baby, the Wheel of Life, and Granddad with Grandson. There is a rose garden between the bridge and the next section which features tree sculptures that contain men and women in various stages of life. Don’t miss the panels that run along the outside edge of the fountain that begin with a baby and display the progression of life until death. When we were there, the main water fountain was not running due to a water shortage. The third section contains marble sculptures with very playful people around a tall monolith with many figures that took 14 years to be carved. The final sculpture contains another reference to the circle of life. We had a guide who helped point out the highlights, and we found this to be most helpful.

Lots of relaxing space in the capital. Long walks, sit downs, cafe, statues, art work, gardens, play areas, are all found at Frognerparken.
Ideal for our granddaughter was the red play park called "Frognerborgen Lekeplass".
Taller adults are recommended to watch your heads, as they can easily hit the structure if you're not paying attention whilst following/guiding your kids around that area, especially when it's packed with the wee ones.

The park is a lovely place to stretch your legs. The sculptures are interesting, note they are mostly or all nudes in case that surprises anyone. We also visited the City of Oslo museum in the park which was very interesting.

‘Ello chaps! About twenty minutes from Oslo’s city center is the world famous Frogner Park. The park is about 110 acres in size, and while it is filled with vast landscaping and floral areas, nothing draws more attention than the baroque style statutes taking up most areas. It’s reported Gustav Vigeland created the statutes between 1924 and 1943. The statutes represent hundreds of naked men, women, and children, many displaying various emotions. Frogner Park is reported to be the largest park, by size, in Oslo. It is also the most popular tourist attraction in Oslo, drawing in 1-2 million people per year. You can spend upwards of an hour here, depending on the season, exploring all the fine details of the park. NOTE: The near by cemetery is also a nice walk and is also a notable site for many Americans because that is where famed disc jockey Casey Kadeem is buried, not because of being of any Norwegian descent, but because of a feud between Kasem’s adult children and Kasem’s second wife. Beyond that I give Frogner Park five stars out of five.

This park was fantastic, the statues are incredible and very interesting, before visiting Oslo I had no knowledge of this park, Gustav Vigelands statues are very interesting and show all the various stages of life, with apparently the Angry Child the most famous of them. We visited on a cold November day but this certainly warmed us , it was a great experience and well worth finding as the park lies a little out from the centre but is easily reached on the train, which are very easy to use . Definitely recommend a visit here if you are going to Oslo and it’s also free! No food or drink places I could see near here so if you go take a snack and water.

Frogner Park is a beautiful urban park in Oslo Norway where the world-famous Vigelandsparken is situated. This is an attraction you should not miss while visiting lovely Oslo. The park contains amazing fountains and sculptures created by Gustav Vigeland that are integrated in an absolutely beautiful setting.

Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943) worked on the sculpture park from 1924 until his death in 1943. Frogner Park is a "must-see" fin Oslo! Highly recommend!

The park offers a wide collection of iconic sculptures. Excellent for a weekend stroll and maybe go for a picnic in the summer. Usually not too crowded but sometimes can be. It is a MUST visit when in Oslo.
