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

While I have been to this "park" in the past, there is always something new it seems. The sculptures are of a rustic nature, with only a handful being colorful. They are spread out over a large area, some in the wide open and others in a forest. Some of the artwork / sculputres you can climb on. They do... More

Just went for the lst time 5/25/14. It a great way to spend an afternoon - great sculptures, bigger then life. Very artistic but kids will love it too as they can climb on all the sculptures as did my 5 and 8 year old grandsons did. Take along a picnic and you've spent a fun day.

We spent the day hiking at Griffis Park, and it was amazing. The sculptures are so beautiful and it was such fun to hike all the trails and search them out. My toddler had a blast climbing the castles. We took a blanket and had a picnic dinner overlooking the lake. We brought our wagon to lug the food (and... More
