Bjergsted Culture Park

With the exception of "Byparken", Bjergsted culture park is Stavanger's largest leisure area close to the city center. In connection with the construction of the concert hall, the park was expanded in the direction of the sea and the city center. The outdoor amphitheater at the concert hall has a capacity of up to 10,000 people. On a daily basis, there is a social meeting place in a landscape that invites to play, social meeting point and art experiences.

A rich flora, benches and lighting, art installations, new patios between the schools, a new pedestrian connects the concert hall to the existing pathway system, makes the park even more user-friendly - for everyone.
