Parks & Nature
Great place for a walk in the woods, or a run. From our apartment : take the 140 bus from the stop just outside, then at Østerås centre change to bus 235 and get off at Fossum "athlete park". 24 mins bus ride but only 10 mins by car. Walk in the woods by yourself or run towards Brunkollen (7 km) for great views over Oslo and a dinner in cozy "hut" environment (https://ut.no/hytte/10634/brunkollen). Stop at Østernvann lake on the way for a swim (https://images.app.goo.gl/h981J6fFtac39KG5A)
Fossum Idrettsforening
245 Ankerveien

The well-known and majestic park created by G. Vigeland. In the middle of Oslo, with famous statues across a large park with ponds with birds and other smaller wildlife.
