    The park has more than just the Vigeland statues
    The Vigeland Park is just a part of the larger Frogner Park. There's a nice waterpark and a stadium, as well as all the walking paths. I read on their website that they build ski slopes in the winter, which must be fun. It's a good place for a picnic or a walk.

    Striking sculpture park
    We visited Frogner Park in June and were surprised at how extensive the installation of “ the circle of life” by Gustav Vigeland was. Although the sculptures are all naked, it’s very tasteful. The park is also very beautiful and a lovely setting for the sculptures.

    Green park
    Attached to Vigeland Park, this is a nice area to walk and enjoy the views and sculptures. Easy to bike, walk or take the bus here. Great spot to visit on a sunny day.

    Wonderful day
    One of the few things that are free in Norway! Excellent visit, weather was perfect, and the sculptures amazing . Easy to get to ( No.12 tram from the waterfront, at the city hall pier) We wandered round the sculpture areas, and then explored the rest of the park, and found more statues in odd places. Well worth the 2 hours of the day. Take the tram back ( worth getting a 24 hour ticket from a 7-11 or kiosk) and change to the 19 At the main station, and head for The other park ( Eckland) another good walk, sculptures and views over the city .

    Do not miss this park!
    A must see when in Oslo. If you love open spaces filled with beautiful, larger than life statues, this is your dream come true. The art is gorgeous and the park setting magical. When we visited, there were school age children in the park on a field trip and visitors from all over the world. A very happy place with nature, easy walking and lovely art.

    amazing
    An absolutely amazing experience, there is so much to see, don't miss it. It is a very large park and was not crowded when we went. There are some parts that are accessible by many stairs so it might prove a little difficult for wheelchair users,having said that the park is vast and the statues are huge so i am sure you can get a good view anyway

    Frogner Park & Vigeland's work but covered in snow!
    We had the chance to visit Frogner Park in Oslo, draped in snow. It offered a breathtaking canvas for Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland's masterpieces. The sculptures, blanketed in white, radiated a serene grandeur against the wintry backdrop, evoking a profound sense of awe and wonder. Vigeland's iconic creations, from the emotive "Angry Boy" to the serene "Monolith," stand as testaments to the human experience, their significance heightened by the ethereal beauty of the snow-covered park. As we traversed the pathways, each sculpture was telling us a story, inviting reflection and contemplation amidst the tranquility of the winter landscape. The interplay between Vigeland's artistry and the natural elements created a captivating harmony, drawing visitors into a world of timeless beauty and contemplation. Exploring Frogner Park in snow was not just a journey through nature; it was an immersion into the profound depths of human emotion and expression as captured by Vigeland's extraordinary vision.

    A must see while in Oslo
    This is a wonderful park open (and free!) to the public. The park contains numerous sculptures by the famous sculptor Gustav Vigeland and it’s truly awe inspiring to see these lifelike sculptures made of stone. On a sunny day you’ll find the park filled with locals taking advantage of the nice weather. The park is used for all kinds of recreational activities ranging from working out, dog walking, picnics, concerts, birthday celebrations, playing games, bird watching, etc. It’s very easy to get here from Oslo Central station either by tram, bus or subway (or simply by walking the few kilometers through the beautiful neighborhoods). In addition to the sculptures, the park contains cafeterias, tennis courts, a huge play ground for kids and swimming pools (extra cost).

    Amazing sculptures, fabulous people-watching
    On a mild, sunny day in June, this park (more accurately, "massive sculpture garden") teemed with locals -- couple, families, groups of elementary school children), making the people-watching almost as entertaining as Emanuel Vigelund's famous sculptures. His work depicted human beings of all ages engaged in activities ranging from a young woman dancing with her hair flying in all direction to two young children riding their mother like a horse. Joy and wonder were everywhere. If you can see only one thing in Oslo, this should be it.

Frogner park I find is an extention of Vigiland park. It is a park filled with flora and fauna but most noticeable erotic postioned statues. I went when it was cold and foggy and yet it was still super beautiful. I can only imagine the summer how much more spectacular it will be. It is a free park park and one I will highly recommend all to see. The bus stops right outside the main to this park ..just ask for Vigiland Park.
