Frogner Park is a public park located in the borough of Frogner in Oslo, Norway, and is historically part of Frogner Manor. The manor house is located in the south of the park, and houses the Oslo City Museum. Both the park, the entire borough of Frogner as well as Frognerseteren derive their names from Frogner Manor.Frogner Park contains, in its present centre, the well-known Vigeland installation, a permanent sculpture installation created by Gustav Vigeland between 1924 and 1943. Although sometimes incorrectly referred to in English as the "Vigeland Park," the Vigeland installation is not a separate park, but the name of the sculptures within Frogner Park. The sculpture park consists of sculptures as well as larger structures such as bridges and fountains.The park of Frogner Manor was historically smaller and centered on the manor house, and was landscaped as a baroque park in the 18th century by its owner, the noted military officer Hans Jacob Scheel. It was landscaped as a romantic park in the 19th century by then-owner, German-born industrialist Benjamin Wegner. Large parts of the estate were sold to give room for city expansion in the 19th century, and the remaining estate was bought by Christiania municipality in 1896 and made into a public park. It was the site of the 1914 Jubilee Exhibition, and Vigeland's sculpture arrangement was constructed from the 1920s. In addition to the sculpture park, the manor house and a nearby pavilion, the park also contains Frognerbadet and Frogner Stadium. The Frogner Pond is found in the centre of the park.

‘Ello chaps! About twenty minutes from Oslo’s city center is the world famous Frogner Park. The park is about 110 acres in size, and while it is filled with vast landscaping and floral areas, nothing.... more »
A must visit destination when in Oslo. A tribute to the cities intent on making it a peaceful public area for locals as well as tourist. Iconic bridge with marvelous statues and not to forget the centre piece. A very large and classy park surrounding the structures are an ideal place for an evening picnic with friends and family.
This is a very unique park and probably my most favorite place in Norway. I was not only shocked, but also had a ton of fun going through the park. The entry is free so anyone can go in. (Maybe not kids)
