I expected a 20 minute stroll with a dozen 'cottage art' level sculptures. That's what it looked like for the first bit... but then the trail opens to a pond and you see "The Bathers". These large works are on par with sculpture gardens I have seen in major cities. The variety of works from here range in quality, size... More

We enjoyed an easy hike around the field and made our way to a pretty pond. Around the pond were large statues, We had a picnic and enjoyed the scenery. Due to sudden flooding, the workmen were digging up part of the road but that did not spoil the lovely area with the artsy touch. the hike is easy and... More

My nephew and I stopped on our way south, thank goodness for GPS because we'd have never found it on signage alone. It was a nice walk on the blue (easy) loop. My nephew had fun climbing on things and the pond is a nice place to sit for a few minutes with The Bathers sculptures. The signs don't say... More

July 4, 2015, dawned as a beautiful day (one of a precious few this summer) and we decided to pay a visit to Griffis Sculpture Park. It is a great Attraction if you like to walk, as the park stretches out over acres and acres, and does provide some interesting photo opportunities. We weren't able to see the entire park... More

For a small donation (voluntary) you can wander throughout many acres taking in the fine sculptures on display here. It is well worth your while, I think.

We do like walking/hiking and art so it was for us. It's a bit off the beaten trail with a small sign at the entrance (thank you SIRI). We went on July 4th, paid our donation (bring correct money as there is no one to give you change) at the entrance and proceeded to follow the trail. There's 2 outhouses... More

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.
