The Frogner Park ( ) is a public park in the west-end borough of Frognermarker in the Norwegianmarker capital of Oslomarker. It is part of the Frogner Manormarker, and belonged to rich families like Anker and Wegner in the 19th century, before being acquired by the city of Oslo.

It is famous for housing the Vigeland Sculpture Parkmarker, which was created by Gustav Vigeland in the 20th century. The 212 sculptures are, essentially, the adult work of Vigeland. The massive works represent various ages, moods, and stages in lives of people culminating in the famous Monolith ("Monolitten") with its 121 figures struggling to reach the top of the sculpture.

Frognerparken is one of the most used parks in Oslo, mainly because of its large grassy areas, relaxed atmosphere and short distance to the city centre. It is also a favourite destination for tourists visiting the city.
