Our readers find there’s a lot more to do in the world’s best parks than feed the ducks. They hike, bike, admire stunning art and sing along with Elvis
In a notoriously expensive city, this free park a 40 minute walk from the centre of Oslo is both a luscious green expanse and an open-air art exhibition. Designed by 20th-century sculptor Gustav Vigeland, it is home to over 200 statues of people running, dancing, arguing, hugging, and more besides, laid out in a moving Wheel of Life. Open all year round, it’s busy in summer with locals bringing picnics and barbecues, and, as befits a park filled with sculptures depicting families in all different shapes and forms, it’s a great spot to visit with children thanks to Vigeland’s specially designed playground.
