This is an interesting place for a walk. These are unusual sculptures. Not really to my taste but interesting all the same. There is no cost to walk here and there are other paths in the area. This town does a nice job with parks and walking/biking paths.

This is a nice little park with a few sculptures with a good size pond, a stream, and some mature trees. Some water fowl to see. At certain times of the year these grounds are used for arts and crafts or festivals like Septemberfest. Definitely nicer to see on a quiet mild day when you aren't pressed for time. Just... More

You can't miss the Muse at the pond ! Amazing sculpture ! But then to find the path leading to the sculptures, it's not so easy :( but once you've found it, it's a delight. There are just a few but high quality ! A wonderful artistic stroll we enjoyed on a sunny day. We'll come again, for sure !

Had a wonderful time here. This was the 1st place we went to when we got to Schaumburg. It was a very pleasant walk with beautiful art. The park itself was just amazing. Very clean. Baby swans floating around. Just lovely.

Step out of the hustle and bustle and connect with yourself as you take a walk through the Athenaeum. Great for a family picnic or a walk. Visited during the week, so it wasn't at all busy.

I'm not sure that I'd travel a huge distance to visit this sculpture park, but we live in the area and its a pleasant place to walk around. The park is near the village headquarters building and grounds which is the site for festivals and concerts (there is a band shell) and near the Prairie Center for the Arts. Its... More

This is one of my favorite locations for a walk. One weekends it gets busy, however it's a beautiful park to visit. They have a fountain with swans, this year I believe there are at least 5 baby swans, and sculptures throughout. There is also a pavilion for live music, and I think they hold concerts there as well. I've... More
