My wife and went hiking and discovered the Sculpture Park. Lots to see quite interesting and a variety OD different sculptures. Do not miss the other half of them a 2minute drive further up the road Entrance fee was $5.00 recommended well worth $5.00 for the hike alone was great

It is very out of the way and not nearly as beautiful or fun to hike as other nearby places, I will not be returning. I do not agree with the very positive reviews. It might be ok for little ones, my teens grew bored very quick. I would rather go to Allegheny State Park.

The towering sculptures flanking the entrance announce boldly The 'speciality la maison' into this amazing sylvan setting. Amazing display of a collection that features 200 sculptures fashioned out of aluminium, bronze,steel, cast- iron and wood. The mindset of the artists' pieces, as well as the curative ensemble, shows high calibre and tones inherent on display. Whimsy is certainly high up... More

This year Griffis added lights to the park. The path is lit leading to the lake and surrounding sculptures. Very nice. They open at dark certain nights charging $10 per adult. TAKE A FLASHLIGHT.

There are actually two parks within a few miles of each other. The one in Ashford Hollow has (in my opinion), the more interesting sculptures. The one in East Otto feels a little more intimate, perhaps because the open (treeless) areas seems smaller and more of the sculptures seem tucked along wooded paths (but, I haven't explored the entirety of...

Very interesting. The park is huge with the sculptures scattered throughout. Be prepared to do a lot of walking. There is also a second section of the park on another road. Would have liked a map to follow. Also, there is very limited parking at the main entrance. Would come again.

We drove to Griffis Park the day after we arrived. It was our first attraction we visited on our trip. We had a nice walk up the side of a mountain looking at sculptures. We enjoyed as some were ordinary..others unusual..and some quirky!! We loved the maidens reflected in the pond!! Thank you....

I had read about this online, both on TA and on some other websites. It was also in a local paper as a recommended attraction so we figured we would check it out when we could. When we first arrived, I thought hey this is going to be cool and it was but there were a lot of things I... More
