Ravnedalen in sunmertime was beautiful. Great amount of flowers, large grassy lawns to relax on, and many things to explore with little kids. A small oasis in the city:)

Visited Ravendalen on a marvellous Segway tour with Fly-n-hi (see my review elsewhere on TA). A stunning setting with incredible huge stone cliffs, water, lovely cafe and vast array of nature all around. Highly recommended.

I love both the lovely food, and also the gorgeous nature. This is one of my favorite places to eat in Kristiansand, with no doubt.

The area is a short walk (15-20)min from centrum. The cafe at the Center of the park is great. But you have to remember mosquito repellent- as is is swarming with mosquitoes

Hiking, ponds, swans, flowers.. Just to name something nice in the summer time. There is also concerts in the summer and they sell some descent hamburgers in this park.

Wonderful and beautiful place. Walk in the park or have a dinner at the restaurant. You can even walk your dog there!
