Barbu Park - playground and much more
The park, which is the first of its kind in Arendal, contains a wide variety of activities; utility lawns, playground, sand volleyball, street basket, skate / roll area, swimming jetty with sun terraces, floating jetty with plunge tower, as well as quiet living zones with varied seating options. The Barbu river, which runs in culvert through the area, is "lifted up" on the ground with a 60 meter long waterfront area. The existing promenade along the seafront from the center is continued and ends in the park.
The park opened in 2017.
