Rottneros Park is the natural meeting place for garden lovers. 14 small show gardens and thousands of summer flowers have been planted. The park is now open for the season. It is located in Rottneros in Värmland, abougt 5 km south of Sunne, next to the E45 road.
“We want Rottneros Park to have a strong profile in which art, garden and various events are combined. We have a unique sculpture collection but for it to be interesting for the present and the future we need to add contemporary sculpture and art,” says Magnus Holmvik, CEO and master gardener at Rottneros Park.

Therefore, 17 new sculptures will be shown in the park throughout the season. The artists are Viktor Korneev, Lolo Funck Andersson, Ann Carlsson Korneev, Ulf Carlsson, Monica Funck, Henny Kortenoeven and Tobbe Malm.
