   Nesparken
is a lovely public park just a 10 min. walk from my apartment!  
   Jutting out into a water recreation area formed by the dammed up Mosseelva (Moss river), it is home to a friendly "paddle" of ducks and other waterlife.
   There is a wonderful lookout bench on a hillside overlooking the park and community, offering a peaceful place to enjoy a pleasant Sept. afternoon!
    The Mossehallen is also located there, a community recreation center or "sports hall" where "handball" is a popular activity. (This in NOT the handball akin to squash or racquetball without a racket that we play at the fitness centers back home...it's the handball that featured prominently in the summer Olympics).
    Roller-hockey is also a popular sport played in Mossehallen! And it houses a very nice pool and water slide as well
