The park is also home to a very famous statue, commonly known as the "angry boy," a statue of a baby boy that has an angry look upon his face.

A vast park dedicated to the stunning works of Gustav Vigeland. There are about 200 sculptures that explore a range of subjects about the human experience; some are deeply moving, especially pieces dealing with family and intimacy while others are surreal, a man fighting babies...

A wonderful park to rest and soak up some Sun. The park is a bit further from the city center, but well worth the trip out.

A visit to OSLO wouldn't be the same if the Vigeland park was left off the itinerary. It speaks to people of all ages with its playground for children, unique sculptures for art lovers and all in a leisurely and centralized setting.

One of the best attractions in Oslo, Vigeland Sculpture Park is quite a unique place. Big portion of the part was dedicated to the sculptor Gustav Vigeland featuring a number of his artwork. There's also a museum where you can learn more about his work.

In Oslo for a day? Drive, catch a cab or ride a Hop on Hop Off Bus to the Vigeland Sculpture Park. Monumental bronze and sculptured stone showcase Mankind - in all its glory, potential and stages of development. The park is manicured green, with boulevards, pathways and hidden nooks. A must see.

The Vigeland Park is the world's largest sculpture park made by a single artist, and is one of Norway's most popular tourist attractions.

The unique sculpture park is Gustav Vigeland's lifework with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Vigeland was also in charge of the design and architectural layout of the park which was completed between 1939 and 1949.

This is a large sculpture park from only one artist - Gustav Vigeland. The park is located within Frogner Park which is the largest park in the city of Oslo. It is fun to see the sculptures since they are large and each one has different emotions. The totem is also a very interesting piece.

WOW! Like nothing I've ever seen! The Vigland Sculpture Park has what must have been at least 100 pieces in metal and stone all by one artist donated to the city for the park. The sculptures depict pretty much every state of human being and emotion. Truly remarkable!

Vigeland Sculpture Park is a very unusual place. It’s a huge park, beautifully landscaped, perfect for relaxing, strolling, jogging, pet walking, etc. But it also has hundreds of sculptures that Vigeland designed, that were built even after his death. People have different opinions about values of his works here (as my husband and I did) but you can’t diminish the overall impression that the whole setting provides, making this a great place to visit.

Vigelandsparken, or Vigeland Sculpture Park, a part of the larger, Frogner Park, contains an extraordinary series of statues by Gustav Vigeland (1869 - 1943). The open-air park contains more than 200 nude sculptures in bronze, granite, and cast iron. Be sure to find Sinnataggen, “The Angry Child”. The climax, however, is the 20 meter high obelisk which depicts humanity playing, fighting, teaching, loving, eating, sleeping, and climbing over each other to get to the top. Vigelandsparken is the touristic highlight of Oslo.

The best park in Oslo. The statues here are great, you should take enough time to look at them in detail to fully appreciate them. I loved the picture of the father with six childern. And of course the boy with the bronze hand. A shame the fountain isn't working at this time, it will be in service as of middle 2014.

Great sculpture park that deserves a visit if you are in Oslo. Bring your own food though, would not recommend the café/restaurant in the park.

This is one of my most favorite parks in the world! I wish I had more time here because I could take so many awesome pictures at this park. I loved looking at all the statues and trying to understand the story that the sculpter was telling. This place is not for the modest though. The 200+ statues are all naked except for one statue of Vigeland himself. Sure I saw groups of teenagers giggling and posing with the statues in compromising positions but they were just having their fun :)

A nice park with impressive human-like sculptures. The bridge surrounds you with statues along the railings as you move towards the parks main attraction, where you find even more beautiful sculptures.

An awesome and quirky sculpture park outside the city. You can spend hours here taking pics alongside the sculptures. Our group tried to do our own versions of some of them.
