Architects: LINK arkitektur Office Profile

Location: Oslo, Norway


Area: 119000.0 sqm
Project Year: 2013

PREPARED BY: DAKSH ARYA

Grorudparken (Grorud Park) is one of four new neighbourhood parks in


Groruddalen.
The park introduces facilities for athletics, play, recreation, youth programmes, social
interaction, and cultural activities for the diverse local population.

LINK Landskap was the


project Landscape Architect, under
commission from Oslo Municipalitys
Department of Water and Sewage.
However, several other municipal
departments were also involved in the
project The Department of Recreation,
The Planning Office, The Office of
Cultural Heritage Management, and the
District of Grorud.
Planning and design work for the park
began in the autumn of 2009, based on
recommendations contained within the
Development Control Plan for Alna
Reserve (KDP Alna Miljpark).

Stormwater from Trondheimsveien and surrounding areas is cleaned within bioremediation


ponds before it is released into the River Alna and Groruddammen.
Water quality has improved significantly, as a direct result of the projects completion.

The project establishes a


continuous landscape and recreation
corridor from Lillomarka, via
Grorudparken, through to Leirfossen
(waterfall) and Hlakkka.
The River Alna is the central
element of the landscape master
plan, which integrates existing
cultural and historical artefacts with
new landscape experiences, while
also facilitating greater visual and
physical access to the river itself.

The project was technically challenging.


Issues relating to flood mitigation, stormwater management and cleansing of runoff
from Kalbakkveien and rv.4, together with cleansing polluted sub-surface materials
adjacent to Groruddammen (Grorud Dam) were critical throughout the design process.
LINK Landskap cooperated with Multiconsult regarding stormwater management,
hydrology, electrics, and geology.

Accessibility and population safety placed significant demands on outdoor lighting within the
project.
LINK Landskap, in cooperation with F Lighting, played a central role in the development of a
site-specific lighting concept, which has created an exciting spatial dimension and identity for
the park.
Cooperation with the various municipal offices and city district was a significant part of the
design and construction process, and the cooperation has yielded exciting results.

Improvement of water quality in Groruddammen through various soil cleansing


techniques, was also a central part of LINK Landskaps role.
The project is a pilot project in Norway and incorporates phytoremediation (a 3 to 5 year
process by which soil pollutants are bound to vegetation), reducing carbon emissions
associated with transporting soil for off-site remediation.
