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

The sculpture garden was smaller than I imagined, but had several interesting pieces. Sit in one of the comfy, white park chairs overlooking the Spoonbridge and Cherry fountain, while listening to the music of wind chimes in the trees.

We didn't have a long time to stop at the sculpture garden, but I'm glad we still did. Loved seeing all the sculptures--we took lots of pictures. We could've spent a lot longer if we would've had more time. I really wish we could've done the mini-golf, it was so neat!

Sculptures are spread out, not on top of each other, quite large, very interesting to look at and take pictures of. Lots of grass and trees. An oasis in a downtown area.

Nice way to enjoy a little time outside in MN in the summer. The SPOONBRIDGE AND CHERRY was fun to see in person, and listening to the chimes was a fun retreat in an urban setting.

We visited about 10am on a Sunday morning and it was not crowded at all. There is no charge for this great attraction. Lots of sculptures throughout the garden, very clean and quiet. A small greenhouse with bathrooms and a surprise, i.e., miniature golf. We spent an hour here and totally enjoyed it. More people started to arrive before we... More

This park was highly recommended by hotel staff. Not many sculptures, but beautiful grounds, flowers and greenhouses. Serene pathways and benches for personal reflection. A little noisy at times - heavy traffic close by. Loved the wind chimes in the trees of which we assume are there to drown out traffic noise. A lot of litter, not sure why as... More

Lots to see and some great sculptures here, definitely have to see it if you are in Minneapolis. We went in the evening (though you might want to use some bug repellent) and it was great time to visit.

My family and I were staying in Minneapolis at a hotel on Nicollett mall. I saw that the park was nearby so we decided to walk over one morning. It was a convenient stroll through the neighboring park (Loring, I think?) Then we took the pedestrian overpass into the sculpture park. The whole walk was only 15 minutes and it... More

A wonderful place to go to relax and have some quiet time. The sculptures are interesting with lots of benches around to sit on. There are two mini golf courses adjacent to the gardens.

This is probably best for seniors or families with young kids who want to run around. There were a few interesting sculptures, but overall, not something my young teens enjoyed.
