A park with a nice modern fountain. A good place to sit down and relax. It is close to the fish market.

With not much else to do and if you are on a cruise this park and its water feature is a short 20 minute walk from your cruise ship dock. It is quiet and peaceful but there is not much more here. Sit a little bit and move on.

We were staying in Kristiansand for ten days with other friends and one evening we spent walking in the city centre and here in Otterdalsparken - it was great. We had so much fun. Some of the things are just nice to watch and see and the others seem to be or kids but believe me - we spent here... More

We walked through this park on our way back from the fortress. Its a pretty little park right on the harbor, but there is little seating so not really some place you need to stay long.

After walking through the entire town we ended up at the waterfront. What a lovely treat: a little beach and boat activity, green space, well groomed gardens/planters, a very interesting water feature, and some strange, but nice art work. The park is not large but it is a bit of a treasure. Many people were taking advantage of the nice... More

Flowers, stylish Fountain, nice pathways, view of the sea and boats make this a wonderful park to stroll or sit down and watch birds fly around. Very peaceful. The fountain with water cascading down forming a water curtain is especially pleasing .

Located by the sea in the city centre. An nice park to stroll and relax. Look at the sea and the small boats moored there. The water fountain and other decorations made by famous artist Kjell Nupen. A popular place forlocals and tourists.

I had been to Kristiansand many time in summer 2015. I could't help to visit Otterdalsparken every times I was in the city. The harbor, the boats, the water fountains, the sculptures and trees and flowers are blend well with the nearby residential buildings. The views were spectacular especially during sunset on sunny days. I also enjoyed the harmony moments... More

This park is astonishing in many ways, made by one artist, Kjell Nupen, beautiful, relaxing, and lots of fun for small children.
