I stopped with a friend on our way through New York and definitely did not give myself enough time to take in all this park has to offer. There are so many interesting metal sculptures placed so perfectly in the natural space of the park that it is great just to stand back and take it all in. Would love... More

We found out about this park when searching for interesting things to do in the Ellicotteville area, and ended up visiting on a sunny Friday afternoon. The metal sculptures are so interesting; varying in size and design, each one is a unique artistic expression. There are lots of trails to explore; here and there a sculpture will greet you through... More

First, the park use admission cost base on honor system. I spend almost 30 minutes, to observe if the honor system work, well.... you should try observe too, maybe just 5-10 minutes will do :) More further you walk to inside the park, less guide to which direction you should go, as not have clear pathway to which direction to...

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!
