Griffis Sculpture Park is a wonderland of fun. Strolling thru the park, which is situated on a hillside in the deep woods, one can see a variety of metal sculptures, from small to gigantic, realistic to abstract, metallic to painted to polished. In fact, one has to keep an active eye off the paths or you might miss one of... More

Griffis Sculpture park is one the most unique and enjoyable places in WNY. You can walk trails to a small lake, walk through the woods or into an open field. And you will come upon large metal sculptures that are whimsical and artistic. Some can be climbed into or climbed up. This is fun for kids, fun for people who... More

Sculpture Park is a hidden gem you'll want to polish off. As a local, I visit at least 2-3 times a year. The sculptures are magnificent and the trails are well groomed. Plan three to four hours for a visit if you're bringing little ones- they'll want to climb on some of the art and run around the vast expanses.... More

We stopped at Griffis on our way down to Ellicottville. We were not sure what to expect but certainly wanted to check it out. We got there around 11am and did the easy/moderate hike. Not many people around when we got there. The trails were decently marked, but a map like other suggested would have been nice. Traffic was certainly... More

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
