It is a nice park and a glimpse of Skien (Norwegian) folk history. Not very large, but can enjoy the park atmosphere. For kids the playground is great, usually many children.

Great park at the top of Skien. There is a large playground for the children, historical buildings and a restaurant with a view of the city.
