The 11-acre site showcases more than 40 works from the Walker Art Center’s renowned collection. A partnership with the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board, the Garden is a top destination for visitors, who enjoy not only the art but also the seasonal displays in the Cowles Conservatory and the Alene Grossman Memorial Arbor and Flower Garden. « less

Although I'm not a huge modern art fan, I did enjoy the park. The spoon and cherry were the best, took tons of photos of it from all angles. The park is well maintained and also has some beautiful flowers. It's an easy walk from downtown.

The garden has many modern sculptures in a large garden and if you like modern art, this is a great place to stroll around in. The highlight is the "Spoonbridge and Cherry" by Claes Oldenburg.

On a bike tour through Minneapolis, we visited the Sculpture Garden and enjoyed the spacious paths, sculpted plantings, ponds and statuary. A pleasant and lovely part of the city. A nice addition are the port-a-potties off to the side as everyone needs one from time to time!

The sculpture garden is really very nice, might take 30-45 minutes to peruse. Longer if you like to contemplate art. But, its free and a great way to get some fresh air!

I did not like all the displays, but I did like some. I also enjoyed the outdoor setting in the middle of an urban area. Fun to view the different presentations. No cost that I remember.

The Sculpture Garden is such an icon in this city. Walking through on a hot Summer day was the perfect activity with 3 families and 7 kids in tow. The kids loved all the "weird" sculptures, but of course, loved the Spoon and Cherry Bridge and playing Sculpture Garden Mini- Golf. This outdoor art park is a great way to... More

We took our 3 and 5 year old with us to this sculpture garden on a recent trip to Minneapolis. The mini-golf course was a lot of fun... good for a laugh for Mom and Dad, and the kids enjoyed interacting with the sculptures on every hole. The rest of the sculpture park was great too, a nice combination of... More

Street parking is available, but there are not that many spaces. The sculptures were interesting. Of course the "Spoonbridge and cherry" sculpture is the most famous. It may take you some time to take a picture of it when other people are not around it. Fortunately, the day was very mild and overcast so walking around was pleasant. There is... More
