A unique Woodstock artistic attraction

Great for climbing around, seeing the views and contemplation, this sculpture park is quirky and beautiful at the same time.

This is a beautiful spot to sit and quiet your mind. It looks like nature made a sanctuary, even though it was the blood, sweat and tears of a mortal!

Stopped by here while in the area. Really interesting sculpture garden and so serene. I enjoyed our short stop here but found it a little pricey.

Stunning living sculpture that took a lifetime to put together. Great for kids and adults. Perfect for late afternoon concerts. Truly one of the area's most extraordinary place to spend a few hours.

The sculpture (Both the landscaping and the individual pieces) are incredible by themselves, when you add in the acoustics it brings this place to a whole different level. Harvey Fite was a true genius with stone and sound. Touring the garden is a great way to spend a few hours, better yet is to attend one of the concerts held... More

This is a very interesting "backyard" sculpture that one man worked on for decades. It is impressive and fun to explore for an hour or so. Awesome views of the mountains good photo op. $10 admission

Interesting in that one man created a sculpture garden with great views of the Hudson Valley mountains. Walking among the man made quarry trails could be a bit of a challenge for anyone with a handicap. Admission fee is $10; some days seniors are admitted for $7. Worth a visit if in the area. Close by (5 miles or so)... More

It is almost like a labyrinth to follow the artist musings and rock garden trail of this life-time project of an incredible artist. Pack a lunch for a picnic and stay a while to explore the trails and scenery. The detail and passion of this backyard project is awe-inspiring. An unusual gem of an attraction, not to miss. Not far... More

Quite an amazing place when you stop and think that one man created this. And with no power tools.The beautiful background of the mountains just adds to the feel of the place. And the little museum is very nice and quite interesting. Definitely worth going to see.
