History of the park
The house in the park is based on civil architect Per Line's drawings dated 1996. At that time, there was no money to build the house, and the drawings were therefore archived in the municipality. After almost 10 years, the project was resumed and the pavilion was built under the direction of architect Einar Myklebust in 2005. The building has a distinctive pyramidal shape that we rarely see in Per Line's work. The building opened in the summer of 2005. The owner is Hå municipality and the building will be used as an exhibition space, for educational work in schools and for renting out to clubs and organisations.
The berry garden
In the immediate vicinity of the main entrance to the park, you will find a fruit and berry garden with whitecurrants, redcurrants, blackcurrants, Aronia, pears and plums. You can bring the family here this summer and enjoy what the park has to offer.
