I have been to lakenenland years ago, but it has expanded and improved even more. What a fun place to stretch your legs and let the kids run. The new bandshell and outdoor patio/ fireplace area are beautiful. I would have lived to get married there! It's free, it's fun, and it's fab.

We just drove through and it was fun to see the sculptures this man had made. We like art and like to see what different people think and make. You can stop, walk, and climb if you want, as long as you are not a government official (read the sign at the entrance, clearly he has battled with local government).... More

We were on our motorcycles and read about this whimsical art park. It is free. You can drive or walk through the park and see all the interesting art made out of scrap metal. There is something for everyone! Kids would absolutely love it! Some of the art work, you can sit in and take pictures, alas the metal skeleton.... More

It seems like we go here at least quarterly, and my kids love to walk the road and get up close and personal with the statues instead of driving it. The road is fairly level and well maintained, and the details of the sculptures are amazing! We just get off the road when a car rolls by (everyone drives slow... More

Wow, very interesting exhibit ( taking junk ) and building Masterpieces. First time we drove pass the Lakenenland Sculpture Park and thought " weird " but on the way home decided to stop and check it out.. Cool Sculptures .. a must see if your traveling on M-28. P.s. if you walk make sure you bring bug spray

This is a must do for anyone who lives in the area or is visiting. It's a nice meander through creative, often funny, sculptures made by the owner. Drop him a donation for his effort. He certainly deserves it.

Our family stopped here while vacationing in the U.P.. We have children ages 5 and 4 and they loved it. One can easily spend a couple of hours here. Whoever made this is incredibly talented and creative. Definitely worth a stop.

Look carefully at the sculptures, or you'll miss the message and half the fun. Many of them have a deeper meaning, some philosophical, but it may take a minute to get it. Study the log splitter driving a wedge through America, red on one side, blue on the other. What's 'splitting' America? The economy, war, health care, taxes, etc are... More
