If you're looking for an offbeat experience while visiting Galena, this sculpture park is for you. The artist has created the park on his property to be enjoyed by the public. There are dozens of amazing scrap metal sculptures here, there, and everywhere, even in the trees! We enjoyed our visit on a beautiful autumn afternoon, and got a lot of great photos. Entry is free, but be sure to leave a donation!

Quirkey and Fun: A quick fun stop if you like quirky iron sculptures. Takes 15 minutes to walk around or you could spend hours trying to understand the artist concepts - good luck with that one.

West Street Sculpture Park is the work of the artist John Martinson. He has repurposed scrap metal into more than thirty art pieces--some comic, some very sad. Most touching is his "9-11-01" which recalls the attack on America. Some like "Leaning Tower of Family Farming" seem to be tribute to hard work. Some like "Outhouse Deluxe" are just silly. The park is well worth a visit. If a person has mobility problems, portions of the park could be difficult. Some of the paths are steep.

Great place to visit and take pictures -- all for free!! Lots of creative pieces to enjoy and if you happen to be there when the sculpture is around, he loves to talk about his creations.
