“No so much a park as a patch of wilderness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

This park is really close to the centre of Kristiansand, yet once you're in it, you'll fell like you're in the countryside. We went on a sunny July day, with the intention of swimming. One of the lakes in the park is known for swimming. At the time we went the water was 22 degrees, which was really nice. There's no facilities that I could see, but that didn't seem to stop anyone. Strip off and jump in!

“Take a break from the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

This place is so close to the city you CANT go there.
Just take a walk to the top of "markens" and go into the woods, there you will find great paths to follow and small lakes everywhere.

Bring BBQ and friends and you will guaranteed have a great time.

“Wilderness on the Northern edge of the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

Not far from the City centre, in-fact the trails extend up into Baneheia just at the top end of Kirkegata. Well made paths wind around the woods past lilypad ponds, ducks and larger lakes that are popular for wild swimming to connect with trails that will take you further out and onto Ravnedalen Natureparken. Quintessential Scandinavian forest landscapes are captured within 1km of the city centre without the intrusion of the city. Great views of the city can be gained before entering into the woods and is well worth the 30 yard detour to take a few snaps from the viewpoint.
