Lekeland (NO)

These are pictures from a trip to a few Norwegian urbex locations with http://knudsens.wordpress.com/ this summer. His other page: http://www.knudsenfoto.com/ I’m terribly slow with updating my blog page I’m afraid. :/

This small playland/lekeland in the middle of a Norwegian city is deserted and forgotten. Quite a lot of different objects and remains of rides are still there. We were blessed with blue skies and great weather which usually makes it a bit difficult to make great photography. The place had water slide, mini-golf, strange troll-figures, car rides, gold digging etc. It opened in the 80ties and was actually once Norway’s oldest familiy park.

  1. Thanks for sharing photos, I didn’t know about this place’s demise. It thought it was a bit amusing that they had a small theme park squeezed in between a graveyard and those tall apartment buildings :-)

  2. Er dette lekeland i Skien?
    Husker jeg var der når jeg var liten før det stengte, føles faktisk ikke så lenge siden. Det var helt anderledes da for å si det sånn :)
    Har vært innom der en liten tur etter det stengte og ser ut som på bildene, helt forlatt og igjengrodd …
