This was such a wonderful experience! The sculptures were so much like what you see in the book illustrations- simply wonderful! The landscaping surrounding the garden was beautiful and could not be any more appropriate for such a setting. I enjoyed taking a seat on a nearby bench in the sun and just admiring the art!

Located on the grounds of the museum Quadrangle, this is a wonderful outdoor place for children to interact with their favorite characters and for adults to recall their memories of childhood. It can be crowded and noisy, but isn't that what Dr. Seuss was all about! Only thing to dislike is that being in the open, visiting on an inclement... More

Great fun, this plaza abutting the Springfield museum complex. Springfield is Dr. Seuss' birthplace, and most of his most famous creations are immortalized in bronze here. Fun for young and old alike. Right now (2015) a massive Patrick Dougherty "stickworks" environmental sculpture is in teh Dr. Seuss Garden. If you can, see it; it's like living in a Dr. Seuss...

This is a great little garden with sculptures of Seuss' most famous characters scattered about. It's small, but there's lots of space to walk around, take pictures, and relax. Also, it's FREE, which was fantastic. I went on a Saturday and it wasn't the least bit crowded, even with it being a gorgeous day out. I highly recommend it to... More

Stumbled on this sculpture garden and it made me very nostalgic. As a writer, and a long-time enjoy-er of Dr. Seuss, this was a great little visit.

Got great pictures with life sized brass sculptures of many of Dr. Seuss' characters. Also saw the Oriigami exhibit. Awesome. The people at the museum were very pleasant.

Brought out 8 year old daughter to check out the sculptures of some cool Dr. Seuss characters and of Dr. Seuss himself. It was raining but was definitely still worth the visit. Our daughter enjoyed having her picture taken with the sculptures.

Our own children are all grown-up by now, but we still feel the curious part of our kids! The outdoor sculptures are very fascinatingly interesting. We feel that the spirit of "feel-good" is indeed alive and well in this park sculpture, bigger- than- life size!

Very nice park celebrating the amazing work of Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel). We visited on a chilly, but sunny, March day and found this to be a great experience. I'm sure on warm days during Spring, Summer, and Fall the park is even more enjoyable.
