It's a wonderful place to take a walk or short hike while experiencing the art and sculpture. The pieces are not so close together that you feel overwhelmed, nor are they so far apart that you can't experience the majority of them in a few hours. The artists and materials are so varied that if one sculpture isn't to your... More

Perfect free activity for a couple hours on a nice day. We did not do this, but I would recommend a picnic. Even if you do not necessarily enjoy art, go and try something a little different than you might otherwise do. Nice walk on mainly flat ground, there are area to hike "off path" to some additional sculptures, but... More

This is a very special place if you like the outdoors, art, and want to have a memorable day with somebody special! The Sculpture's are "Unique", some quite large, other quite different. On a nice day enjoy the free parking, free admission and splendid "Walk thru the woods" as well as "The Pasture" for those who maybe are not as... More

Although not the best known St louis area attraction, this park holds some excellent sculpture and rotates exhibits often enough so that every visit is interesting. Guests are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and eat at the tables provided or find an appealing spot for a relaxing meal. The art is contemporary and many visitors go through the "what... More

Very neat park that you can walk around and check out different people's perceptions of art. There many memorials, including my grandmother's.

Lots of interesting (and sometimes bizarre, to my eyes at least) sculptures scattered around a very pleasant park, great for a walk or stroll in good weather. I would like to reinforce what has been said by another reviewer: this really is a great way to experience art up close and personal. Well done St Louis!

This is a large park with small museum space for rotating indoor exhibits and a large space outdoors for large contemporary sculptures. These is even a trail through the woods that leads to an interesting sculpture over a stream and a large earthenwork one . Sculptures are of varying quality. Dogs are also allowed in this park. Exhibits are free.... More

My 9 year old daughter and I visited the park this summer. We enjoyed being about to stroll though the park and interact with some of the sculptures. There are little hiking trails through the woods or a path around the park. We walked the park and then had a picnic lunch under a tree. it was a great way... More

A very cool outdoor sculpture park. I arrived on an early November day and the weather was perfectly crisp. Some of the sculptures are located right off a road, others require a brief hike into the woods. It was a lot of fun to keep walking along, only to be surprised by a new work of art. Also, there was... More

Not sure that we saw all of it, but we saw enough to physically exhaust ourselves. The way the sculptures are integrated makes them appear as a surprise in many areas. Most of the sculpture is abstract so you should have a taste for that, but it is a great collection. They are spread over 43 acres and I think... More
