The garden consists of nine large-scale sculptures, a circular snake wall and maze entryway, artistic bench seating, and native shrubs and trees. It is open to the public Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. to noon, and on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m

I have been wanting to stop here and see this unually sculpture garden. The details of the mosaic the sulpture are very different. You will neeed to ponder the sculpture to get the understand of the artist. The sculptures are starting to loose some of their mosaic tiles or stones. The stones and mosaics are so creative to give it that added touch. For photographers you will want to get there early. Just to get the emptyness.

Very annoyed at the limited hours. What experience is only available from 9AM to Noon? We drove all the way out to Escondido based only to be turned away as the place closed at noon. My friend is here from Paris, France so this was quite a blow especially since many of the other Niki de St. Phalle sculptures have been moved.

Yes, the hours are limited but the effort to make it out to see this art exhibit is well worth the time. Several informational signs to tell the backstory. Lots of photo opportunities!
