The weather has been lovely lately and I have taken the opportunity to go out for a few walks. I walked past the Geo-Park the other day and I was reminded of how much I like the idea of this playground/park in the city centre.
The park is filled with stuff from the oil industry that is not in use any more. It’s located right outside the oil museum, Stavanger being the oil capital in Norway. All the stuff has been donated by various oil companies and they are given a new life in the park. And it’s very popular with the children of all ages. You can, among many things jump on big orange buoys, crawl through a pipeline, play beach volleyball or hide under a big GPR cover in the rain.
I think this is a very good way to find use for all the expensive equipment that is no longer of use offshore. And the park is located by the sea and looks really lively and colorful in the sunshine. As it is a place where the graffiti artists have been allowed to use their creativity to brighten up the walls and installations.
