Nice and green park with more than 100 modern art stone sculptures. One more thing it was created on old Klaipeda city cemetery during the soviet occupation times.

By the way it is called just: "sculpture park". Some how, some years ago they changed name from Martynas Mazvydas Sculpture Park to just Sculpture Park. So I guess you should be aware of that.

Klaipeda is my native town and i like to come to the Sculpture park once i happen to be in Klaipeda. Not so many attractions in Klaipeda with a tiny Old town, so if the town's authorities pay more attention to the park it could be one of the top sights to visit. Unfortunately it's quite opposite, the pathways are in the state they were from the park establishment, no interest to make bilingual signs by the sculptures with a little explanation of the sculpture idea or at least the title translation to English. At least they provide some funds to mow the lawn time from time, but still the park needs more to get updated.
Having said that i still advise to go there if you are interested in the sculptures, there are 117 ones there, representing tendencies of Lithuanian sculpture art in 70-80' of last century. The park is roughly in 15 mins walking from the Old town. One might find the Sculpture park oddly designed, but keep in mind it was started in 1977 on the site of the former cemetery active from 18 century with last burials in 1959. In 1983 it was ordered to remove all graveyards and to start the Sculpture park. However there are still some graveyards left and some chapels of the noble men restored, like the one of the Klaipeda patron Jewish merchant Julius Wiener. On the eastern side there is a monument to volunteer fighters of 1923 when Klaipeda was incorporated to Lithuania.
So come with little expectations and you will spend an interesting time there.

This was one of the most interesting places I visited in Klaipeda, except of course, for the Coronian Spit. The park was an old cemetary, and it is quite large, filled with trees, and there must be at least 100 sculptures there. Lots of park benches filled with elder Rigan women, and also lots of children. It's an interesting respite from busy touring, and a great place to recharge your batteries

Nice place, but so much Soviet times. The paths need to be rebuilt, some more flowers and a fountain would help.

I am an avid sculpture park seeker and I was excited to see that there was one within a 20 minute walk of city center. The park itself is nice and shaded; however, the layout of it is strange. The sidewalks in the park need maintenance and at times, it looks more like a cemetery.

We took the bus from the old city to the central bus station, sculpture park is just next to it. The atmosphere of this former cemetary provides a calming balm for tourists. It is simply a beautiful experience, try to go at noon on Sat/Sun when the carillon concert is heard from the neighboring church.

Klaipeda was the least favorite stop on our trip because there was not that much that was interesting to us. The sculpture park was the best thing we did. The statues are interesting and our self guided tour around the area was a good way to pass the time.

We stopped here on our cruise in July. We did a self guided tour of the town.We found the sculpture park which is interesting and spread out around town - which can be a bit of an adventure for children. Overall it was cute but not overly exciting. We had difficulties finding some of the other attractions. We found Klaipeda to be a very small sleepy type of town. Most shops didn't open until after 10am. Also, the cobblestones were the most difficult to walk on from all of our Baltic stops.

The day we were visiting was overcast, which perhaps is why we found it a bit gloomy. I highly recommend dropping by the "Coffee Inn". We had the best coffee ever at this Cafe and very friendly service too. We went back a second time just because we found it so good, and it brightened up our day. Their marzipan muffins are divine...

It was right in front of our hotel so we could not not go to see it. It was rainy for a half of our trip and unfortunately we went to see it when it was raining. All the sculptures are made out of rock such as granite. The sculptures are a bit weird but interesting nevertheless. The rain also sort of added some character to the sculptures too.
