Frogner Park

Frogner Park (Norwegian: Frognerparken) is the largest park in the city and covers 45 hectares. Frogner Park contains, in its present centre, the well-known Vigeland installation a permanent sculpture installation created by Gustav Vigeland between the 1920s and 1943. The beautiful park holds 14.000 roses and the paths around the sculptures and round the beds of roses are laid with light Oppdal quartzite crazy paving.

The sculpture installation is the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist. It is Gustav Vigelands lifework with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Vigeland has also designed the park itself. Frogner Park is the most popular tourist attraction of Norway and is open to the public at all times. Frogner Park was protected under the Heritage Act in 2009 as the first park in Norway.
