Apparently around in various upgrades for 40 yrs. but we just learned of it last month (Sept 2015). Walking tour of many acres of some weird and unusual metal sculptures. We walked the open field and wooded first stop. Made up names for what we saw, then moved on to the more difficult to locate ... Central portion we had... More

Fun place to walk around and view sculptures. Bring your walking shoes as the trails go quite far up and down hill. The sculptures are fun and interesting. We particularly liked the insect sculptures.

We took a trip to Griffis Sculpture Park last week - not knowing much about it. Located near Ellicottville off of route 219, the Park is a large mostly natural area with paths through the woods and fields interspersed with a variety of large sculptures. You start at the parking lot which has a couple of portajohns for your usage... More

Very unique. We will go back when we can take our time and explore the whole park. We were not able to do the extended/difficult trail because we had lunch reservations. We did thoroughly enjoy our walk and felt it was worth the time and the donation.

Our friends planned a quick visit to Griffis Sculpture Park for us. What we saw was fascinating, but this is not a "quick visit" kind of place. Allow yourself plenty of time to wander and hike the trails and see the many overwhelming sculpture. the place is HUGE. There was no admission fee that we could find, no donation jar... More

A very beautiful and peaceful park to hike, the art is scattered all over the park in places you really don't even notice at 1st. It's kinda hidden and my GPS took me a very different way that was a little dangerous driving, since you drive down a very narrow, rocking hill....dangerous way but sure there was easier way. But...

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
