We took our dog here and walked a few trails. There is a cafe over looking a lake with a nice sitting area outside. The only animals we saw were two swans on the lake. It's very pretty but not very big. Free parking and entry.

Ravnedalen is really beautiful, especially in summertime. I think it's a very good place to have a picnic, too. When you climb up you also get a great view of Kristiansand.

One of the most beautiful places in Kristiansand. Plus a hiking trail to the top with a nice view. There is a nice cafe, tasty burgers and concerts during the summer.

Arriving by cruise ship, we didn't see anything that we fancied. We decided to take a cab to Ravnedalen Naturpark and walk about to the city center! It is gorgeous. Beware that you should try to obtain a map to make your way back as its not all that clearly marked.

Beautiful scenic area that is worth a visit. It is a very peaceful place with beautiful flowers, plants and birds in the pond. It is free entrance for the public. This is a georgeous relaxing area where you can bring your own food for a picnic, or go to the restaurant for lunch. Wonderful.

Beautiful park, only a 15 min walkfrom the center of town. Has a cafe called Cafe Generalen, with good food :) From the park you can walk up to what is called Baneheia, phaths through the forest and to waters where you can go for a swim.

This is my number one, on the list of places to visit in Kristiansant. This amazing park is 100% of what norway is all about : The nature is fantastic and the people using the park, friendly and happy. The Generalen Cafe serves great norwegian waffels 👍🇳🇴, and many more norwegian specialities.

This is a beautiful park with a lot to offer. Residential swans in the lake, an impressive cliff top for that refreshing overview, seasonal flowerings of rhododendrons, huge, ancient trees, a decent restaurant and even a stage for concerts. It's also a gateway to the city's main park. Must see.
