Very nice Sculpture Garden

It would have been nicer if the weather was better..100 degrees. The park is smaller than I thought it would be, but very nice.

I've been here twice. Once for a wedding reception and once with my boyfriend. Both times it felt very special and romantic. The garden is just the right size and has so many beautiful statues.

It is free to the public this summer due to large donation from one of their sponsors. I was a tag-a-long with my son and his girlfriend who wanted to go. I loved every bit of it. The lay out of the garden was so tranquil and beautiful. The sculptures were amazing. We went during the hotest part of the... More

This was such a nice place to spend an afternoon. I really didn't know much about the artist previously so I enjoyed learning about him and viewing his work in this lovely natural setting.

The pieces on display show the talent of the artist . The garden is peaceful and enjoyable to walk through. There are a number of benches to sit back and take in the beauty surrounding you.

Art is so subjective, so what can I say? I liked Umlauf a lot, his style isn't so "out" there that it wasn't understandable and his subjects are relatable. The gardens are beautiful and there are many places to sit and relax, if you are so inclined. The waterfall was a tiny trickle, so that was a bit of a... More

It was great to be introduced to a new artist. Umlauf was an amazing scultor and humanist. The gardens are beautiful, peaceful and it felt like you were transported to another time and place.

I knew nothing about this sculptor and was impressed by the quality of his work in a number of different metals.

Attended a wedding on the grounds recently and found the property to be very peaceful and beautiful. It's a short walk from Barton Springs and a nice quite break from the very popular tourist area.
