The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is one of the crown jewels of the city’s park system, uniting two of Minnesota’s most cherished resources—its greenspace and its cultural life. 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.

Enjoyed this walk through the sculpture garden in Minneapolis. The cherry sculpture is the highlight there and I believe the largest. We saw many other sculptures, some interesting, some a big yawn, but it was a beautiful day to see the park so I enjoyed it.

Not alot to see in the sculpture park but we knew that before we went, just a few sculptures. The cherry and the spoon is the main attraction, and it is good to see with the city's skyline in the background.There is a green house with plants in it along with the restrooms. There is a mini golf course for... More

It's a fantastic view, It's fun for the whole family to get outside and smell the fresh air. You are close to downtown, and now you can even play mini golf while strolling through the garden. This is good place to go for everyone either solo, with friends and family. If you like taking pictures, this is the place to... More

A really special place that is poised to get even better. The addition of family AND adult interactive mini-golf is amazing. It is a spacious and lovely garden with great art in the view of the Minneapolis skyline. It is welcoming to children, who can run around and be a little crazy while soaking in the cool sculptures. Pretty great.... More

We found this garden right before we were leaving on our vacation. Just the spoon alone was a "Hey let's go check this out". It was so much more than we ever expected. Our 8 and 12 yr old loved wandering through the gardens looking at each piece of art. The weather was overcast, but that didn't matter. There are... More

Such a fun park and area to walk around in. It was the ideal place to walk off our brunch. Right in the middle of a busy area, what a great place to spend the afternoon.
