I'm not one to spend a lot of time at museams or sculputre places, but this sculpture garden is worth the "drive out of the way" to visit. It's small-ish but provides a very nice stroll as you look at a lot of very interesting sculpture pieces. Quiet even though there a bunch of people and kids around! Do yourself... More

I'm one of many "regulars" who walk our dogs here. The park is an oasis close to downtown. There's an incorporated Children's Park featuring whimsey and subjects kids will enjoy. The majority of the work reflects CO history, ecology and quirks. Strategically placed benches afford time for contemplation. A nice way to spend a casual hour break on a road... More

Tucked away in the Northern part of Loveland Colorado is a sleepy little passive park, known as Benson Sculpture Park. Once a year it is inundated by local and world renowned artists at the Annual Art in The Park Event. You can avoid the crowds (and the admission price) at any other time of the year and enjoy some of... More

Wow, this place is really something. You will not find a comparable amount of outstanding sculptures in any other town of this size. Plan to take a couple of hours for the complete walk around the garden. And then drive around the town and see many more outstanding sculptures.

A great display of sculpture. Most of the sculpture is realistic, quite a bit is of animals. But there is also abstract. A nice mix. There is a bathroom. The building interestingly has several 1 foot (or so) squares of bas relief sculpture. The water fountain was not working when I was there. Perhaps it has been shut off for... More

We walked through only part of this park as we only had an hour and a half and our hosts didn't realize how big it was. How we wished we had more time! There could be no better free experience for adults as well as children. In our family group there were senior citizens, middle aged, and children aged 14,... More
