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

Park is very well kept . Art is abundant. It was fun to see all the sculptures. We walked here from Hyatt Place downtown.

We came with kids (10 and 12) who are not super keen for art, but the installation is easily accessible and makes for a. Wonderful diversion on a warm day. There was a nice breeze and we were able to take in the art with minimal disruption. We came by bikes in the cities bike system and this makes an... More

This park was different. We walked around it in less than an hour. However cops hang around the sculpture parking lot writing up tickets to tourists who have no idea they are supposed to pay for parking due to poor signs. We were waiting behind some people to pay for parking at the box, and a cop had got out... More

Where else can you see a sculpture of a spoon holding a cherry? Seriously, great venue for pictures and makes a nice walk from downtown. Rock the Garden.

I wasn't sure what to expect of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. I certainly was pleasantly surprised. We spent a little over an hour looking at the sculptures and beautiful gardens. Each piece was unique. I especially liked the Wind Chimes. We walked through them at the end of our visit and I was unaware of their existence until I heard... More

A great art work in the middle of the city and so many interesting sculptures like the glass fish.. " the spoon and the Cherry" is now like the main attraction and symbols of Minneapolis. Also Loring Park is a few meters across where you can chill and relax in the shade, with a view over the lake.

I work near the Walker, so I frequently take my noon time walk there. It is so stress relieving and delightful. One of our regional treasures.

What an amazing attraction that is fun for everyone in the group!!! I really enjoyed the walk through a neighboring park where there was a dandelion fountain. The "spoon and the cherry" sculpture were worth the entire trip. If you can, stand on the overpass bridge to get shots of the churches that are within great range of your camera... More

the most eye-catching is the "spoon and the cherry", in the morning time, you can take good picture with that sculpture, because the sunlight angle is good, and u can take the reflection of the sculpture as well, because there is water underneath.

Enjoy this free and accessible collection of art. There is lots of variety for you to enjoy in this scenic garden setting. Most of the sculpture garden is in the main park area, but there are a few additional pieces across the street beside the Walker Art Center. My favourite is Sky Pesher, where you can view an isolated piece... More
