A new playground, Avaldsnes Leikvoll, was built earlier this year at Norway’s oldest royal seat.
The name Leikvoll was chosen because "play" in Norse times included both play, sports and artistic activities.
Avaldsnes Leikvoll is a special park that has both artistic qualities and invites to play and learning. The park, which is located just above Nordvegen Historiesenter, has a total of 10 installations. All installations are made of natural materials and have an abstract design.
Each installation tells a story that can be linked to Avaldsnes or Norse culture. Tasks are also created in connection with each installation. Activities are created for families with children that visit Avaldsnes.
Nature is an important element in the park. Therefore, flowers and raspberry bushes grow freely in parts of the area. Here are also a number of roots and tree stumps that are home to many insects.
On Sundays you can visit Nordvegen History Center and learn more about the Viking history.
