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

This place is big enough to get lost in -- and we did, in the rain, no less. But we loved it. It's full of gigantic steel sculptures -- of insects, of vaguely mythological figures, of toy submarines and the like for kids to play in. The sculptures are in gardens and in fields, separated by hiking trails. You think... More

Love wandering around here. Great location and beautiful sculptures. Nice for a picnic, or just lying in the sun to read a good book.

We've been visiting this park for years and it never gets old. The fall is lovely with the changing colors and this past year we tried the winter snow shoe which was wonderful. Payment is on the honor system and I encourage everyone to contribute to support this wonderful park. We will be back.

Oddity at its best. There are 2 different signs for Griffis park when you get to the top of the dirt road, one takes you through a walk in the wood, where you will experience something new around each bend.these are welded metal huge sculptures that someone has created in the woods. Then as you drive to the other part... More

This place has been on my bucket list forever. It was a rainy kind of day, but we still went, and I'm so glad I did, I will be back! So much open space, and trails, you could easily. Spend a few days In this park. Between the wildlife and the sculptures, on the trails. It was a great day!!!... More

Sometimes on our way to ski in Ellicottville you see the faded signs to Griffis and are reminded that we have a real hidden treasure nearby. Try to visit on a cool sunny day and enjoy a hike through the hills and forest to see some fun and interesting sculptures. The views from the upper area are amazing and the... More

This would get a 5 star rating because it is really cool, however, there was not one bit of information available at the visitor center (which was a hut) and it is high season there. Back to the park though, AMAZING! Great hiking and the sculptures pop out of nowhere. Truly magnificent. Some of the sculptures are 25-30 feet high.... More

Wear hiking shoes or good sneakers. If you enjoy hiking this is the place to go. The park has different levels of difficulty and the sculpture along the way are fun,unique, and awesome. The area was very muddy in March, but we did hike the lower area due to the mud. Bring a camera and a water bottle with you.... More
