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

This is a "rustic" sculpture park with about 60 pieces at the main location. There is also a secondary site about 1 - 2 miles away. I drove past that, saw about a dozen totem-pole-like steel sculptures. It's in a remote area about halfway between Jamestown, NY and Buffalo, though the directions are good and it's easy enough to find.... More

If you are in the area, or the region you should see this outdoor museum park. It's amazing. It costs very little and you'll get your exercise if you try to take in the whole thing like our family did. I strongly caution that if you plan to try to do the red loop and the blue loop be prepared... More

A friend and I spent several hours wandering the park on a beautiful fall day. The park was definitely worth the drive and it was fun to see what was around the next corner. The hike up the hill took us a while, but there are benches and places to stop along the way. Lots of the sculptures were able... More

If you can't walk far, at least go to the lower pond. It's got a nice view that you can enjoy from a bench. If you have children, be advised that many of the sculptures are nudes. Some are no longer standing, but have been dislodged. We did the full loop, but am not sure we did the return correctly... More

This was an interesting place to spent an afternoon. Next time, I would pack a picnic lunch. Some really cool sculptures and climbing on them is encouraged. Definitely bring a camera and comfortable walking shoes. It's a lot of walking, and things, places are not clearly marked, but as long as you have the time, it's a neat place to... More

About 1 hour from Buffalo, we visited this park on our day trip to Buffalo. Very interesting park with scuptures scattered throughout. Admission is $5 on an honour system. We only walked about half of the park since the further you walk the more difficult the trail. It's colour coded green, blue, and red. Red being the most difficult hike.... More
