The oil industry is big in Stavanger, Norway. There is quite an international community thanks to the employment opportunities, and even an Oil Museum. We did not go to the museum but we did check out Geopark next door. This is an outdoor “playground” made of old drilling equipment, decorated with graffiti. (I’m not sure if the graffiti is intentional, but it did add color and a grunge/industrial flavor to the park.) The boys loved climbing all over and had it not been raining, I’m sure we could have spent hours here. It was Mom and Dad who were ready to quit first.
These photos are captionless because I have no idea what the original use of the equipment was. There were some signs and placards but not in a language I could read or understand. However, pictures speak louder than words so check out the coolest playground in Stavanger, Geopark!
