I will be generous and give it an average rating. It is not really artistic sculpture park, but more of a hodgepodge of things that may make an adult think are the products of someone learning to use a blowtorch and welder. On the other hand, kids should get a kick out of the drive around the mini-park as they... More

What a cool place! You can drive around it, but we hiked and I'm glad we did. It is terrific. Very creative and fun.

Located a few miles east of the Ojibwa Casino outside Marquette on the south side of the state highway on the way to Munising. You can park and walk or drive through the collection of at least 40 welded art. Located on the main snow mobile trail as well. Free.

We were told to visit this park by our B&B hosts and decided to check it out. We'd passed it many times and thought it looked odd, but decided to give it a chance. We ended up LOVING IT! The sculptures were great and really showed the artist's creativity. Some of them made us laugh and others we thought were... More

The person behind this is quite amazing. Not only did he create all the sculptures from "junk", but he made the space where they are displayed available 24/7, with no admission charge. You can either drive or walk the paths where the sculptures are located; it would seem that driving is the best way to go, unless you have a... More

The artist's imagination and attention to detail was impressive! This gentleman appears to be very generous; we did not see a "donation box." The pavilion was beautiful. The outhouse even had hand sanitizer and air freshener! My husband and I enjoyed our visit.

This is an absolute must see. The man that owns this has a great imagination and is a very talented welder. And its free. Incredible!

If your are in the area Lakenenland Sculpture Park is definitely a place to stop. The sculptures are one of a kind and it's interesting to see how this man brings discarded objects together to make such awesome works of art. Wish I had more time the day we visited, really would like to spend more time at this curious... More

A bizarre mix of one man's artistic vision, welding skills, northern Finn working man sensibility, politics and cosmic consciousness that he has set up alongside the road along with a wetlands trail, sculpture drive in the woods, old mine, fishing pond and small concert and picnic venue. I'd love to meet this guy!
