Amazing grounds with a nice waterfall area. Interesting vine sculptures and lots of varieties of plants well marked. Nicely manicured. A café for a light lunch though a bit pricey, however the grounds are free.

Lots of green parks in Oslo and this is one of them. If you visit the natural history museum it's easy to walk back through this park. Lots of interesting plant and animal life, and a place to relax.

We spent a very pleasant hour pottering around here admiring the various trees, plants and shrubs, pond, Viking ship display, etc and soaking up the peaceful atmosphere. A good place to unwind.

It was so much fun to wander the grounds of this beautiful garden. Unfortunately they were working on some areas but the places we saw were just gorgeous with flowers blooming so brightly
