Eastern Norway Viken RAKKESTAD

Kong Oscars Hage, (King Oscars garden) Rakkestad

  • Storgata, Rakkestad
  •  /  km From You

King Oscars Garden is in Liensparken in Rakkestad, in front of Liens farm facing Storgata. The little park is the place to be in the summer. Enjoy a good book, or just relax after a hectic day at work or school. Maybe you want to play a round of Pentaque as well on the new court.

You might be wondering why the park is named King Oscars Garden? King Oscar was on a field maneuver in Rakkestad in 1899. He lived in his train cart and ate at Liens farm that was a hotel at the time. 

The park has been upgraded with street-stone and has gotten a great metal-wall designed and shaped by Edvin Stubberud, and is a result of a drawing competition.

A huge street art piece of a two spot dragonfly and a grain bundle with Rakkestad-landscape decorates the wall towards King Oscars Garden.

Artist Are Buraas has painted the picture with spray cans. Two spot dragonfly was found in Northern Blytjern in 1994. It is rare in Europe and is a very special dragonfly that is hard to spot.
