Sarabråten is an area near the lake Nøklevann in Østmarka, Oslo, Norway.

Now a recreational area, it was owned by Thomas Johannessen Heftye and his descendants from 1856 to 1911, and after that by Oslo municipality.[1] It was first recorded under the name Jørgensrud in 1578, when owned by the Diocese of Oslo.[2] A ski jumping hill was located here earlier.[1]

Sarabråten has a memorial of Christian Dons,[1] founder of the Scout Movement in Norway, as well as a memorial raised in 1946 of nine WWII resistance members.[2]
