We loved the Stave church. Really neat park, very beautiful. The reproduction houses were great, the flower garden's, waterfall, and waterways were also beautiful. Very restful place inside the city.

A picturesque park right in downtown! A peaceful place to take a stroll and enjoy the gardens. Many statues and buildings with signage explaining the significance of each. Kudos to the planners! And the maintainers! Free admission
