Kosters Trädgårdar


A park that can grow slowly and with several purposes

The idea is that landscape care should go hand in hand with experiences in the landscape. There are not only temporary and permanent installations but also music and lighting experiences outdoors. A key word is participation and sustainability. Year after year, artists are offered to make visible or audible impressions. Some works of art may protect you from rain or make you see nature in a new way. Sometimes the artists also hold workshops that you can participate in.

The entire park is an extension of Kosters Trädgårdar. Actually an old path where Långegärde residents Albertina and Charlotta grazed their cows for summer work on Bôlebacken. Maybe the name should be "Albertina's cow path". Or see it as an enhanced hiking trail where you suddenly discover that man has been present.

Cross one of the bridges from Kosters Trädgårdar and continue walking through the cleared area to Bôlebacken. You pass a number of different "rooms". Large open or narrow, tightly surrounded by beautifully cut rocks. This gives a feeling that nature itself is also a work of art.

Welcome to walk in!

"A sculpture park can be a place where man, culture and nature meet. It can accommodate questions about existence on a philosophical level as well as the concrete in the experience of scents, shapes, light and shadow. We want the sculpture park to work for these experiences, between people, and be a guide for how to see culture and nature with the same eyes, just as one must seek new perspectives to meet the challenges of our time around the ecological sustainability of society, but also for their origins as a cultural area derived from agriculture and fishing, their present as a place of residence and destination, as well as their future as a society.
