I attended on a overcast day which created a sharp contrast to the colorful, creative sculptures in the park. While it only took an hour to navigate, you amble far from civilization so the only sounds you here are gravel underfoot and the assorted sounds of farmyard animals. The park provided a very soothing experience for me and a nice... More

Really cool, whimsical sculpture garden that goes on and on. I loved a bunch of the exhibits...not museum quality for the most part, but really excellent displays and settings. Worth the drive!

My wife and I stumbled upon this gem while riding the Chelais Western Bike Trail. Thy are currently trying to reopen the buildings and reestablish an active site. However, the sculpture gardens are open and they are wonderful--if somewhat overgrown. There are many, many large freestanding sculptures scattered over the grounds. Well worth a visit.

I ride my bike on the Western trail and this little park was always a delight to go to. I went recently and found that they had closed. Too bad, it was a fun break on the bike trail.

This is a pretty neat site with metal sculptures as big as a house. They are distributed all over the property.

According to the website, which does not seem... More

it the middle of a prairie. This is a sculpture garden with artwork from all over the world. The owner is a international artist. The stuff is beautiful and extraordinary. There is an annual party with an art show, dancers, singers..like I said ...in the middle of a prairie. This is the most extraordinary place. Please go.

This is a great place to take a troop or other group of kids for free. They accept donations to keep it running. Lots of cool stuff to explore.

You may be able to access it, but you should know that it has been closed for about a year now. Nothing is being maintained.
