Revisjon per 10. sep. 2019 kl. 19:42 av Astrid
IFLA World Congress 2019 will take a closer look at urban transformation, green mobility, healthy and beautiful landscapes and community participation. During three days in Oslo, we aim to inspire, challenge and intrigue you. We want you to share and reflect on the knowledge that is developed, presented and discussed.
Join us in moving one step further to understand and protect our COMMON GROUND.
This article is part of IFLA Common Grounds: Walk+Talk.
The Palace Park is one of Oslo’s first public parks, displaying the romantic landscape style that dominated
garden arts in the 1840s. The park is characterized by extensive perennial plantings, great lawns as well as
the oldest trees in Oslo.
Despite its historical roots, new ideas and styles are also implemented in the park design. One area is
dedicated to native meadows, important for bees and pollinators. The park also contains seven historic
statues as well as a newly opened section with temporary sculptures designed in collaboration with children.
The walk will introduce to the participants the history of the park and how it is the main outdoor area for
national ceremonies. Information will be given about the use of the park as a public park in the city centre.
We will talk about the maintenance program for vegetation with focus on the treatment of trees.
