 The sculpture Monolith in four parts by lars Hansson


A buste of  the 18th century poet, songwriter and composer Carl Michael Bellmann


The Palm house























The rose garden












 A local gym conducting a party in the park near the Maipole


Ornäsbjørk discovered in 1767- the Swedish national tree. Every Swedish commune has one of these planted.
