One of my favourite spots in my home town. This park has the nice fountains, close to a marina and even palm trees close by. Just like a small oasis.

Kristiansand is not a big town, but a 20 - 30 minute stroll through this park with fountains and flowers is highly recommended. The Christianshold Festing or tower is close by.

A nice and cosy park where you can walk around and feel peaceful. There are many flowers and some fountains in the park. We really enjoyed our time there. Try to go in the evening where the colours of the sunset are beautiful.
