I started coming here 20 years ago and still enjoy a trip here every few years. I can still get on the castle! It's a lot of walking up/down hill if you choose the lower section, but doable. Great to see the new additions!

The sculptures we nice. The hiking path is nice. Don't forget the bug spray. We only did half the trail because it was hot and muggy.

Take a leisurely walk in the woods on well defined paths and find interesting metal art sculptures all along the way. There are many sculptures that the children can climb into for some really cute photos. Be sure to visit both sections of the park for a really nice day. Enjoy nature at its best!

What an interesting and healthy way to spend a couple or few hours! For a $5 ($3 seniors and students, free for children under 12) donation, a well-constructed hiking path/trail took us through meadows and woods in search of the next (out of over 250 pieces) outdoor sculpture. Trails were clearly designated easy, medium and hard, so we were able... More

This was a day trip. Awesome views, nice trails and the sculptures are so cool set out in Mother Nature. The admission is $5 for adults, has a drop box (on your honor system) and $3 for students. The property is well maintained and there are picnic tables around the parking area. Porta potties were very clean. Lots of room... More

The great attraction for families if you love art to great place to take young kids where they can play at the art and run around in a fun environment and you don't have to worry about them breaking anything. I would highly recommend it if the weather is permitting to spend a couple hours wandering the park.

I researched this place on Trip Advisor before we left on our trip to the States and the reviews seemed good. But when we got there the... More

If you want to be outside on a nice day this place is perfect. Although there is a lot of hiking up hills this is a great place for families to go.
