This sculpture park was intended to house the works of the designer, but the setting itself became the artist's masterwork.

Interesting for all, not just tourists.

I grew up in Saugerties but had never been to Opus 40. It was a nice place to walk around, the rock sculptures and formations are impressive. There is also a small museum.

I loved it because I could appreciate the amazing effort and determination of the artist. It's amazing what 1 man could do and his vision is beautiful. Found it very interesting and inspiring. Wouldn't recommend it for kids as there were a few while I was there and they complained that they were bored. Not sure why because it is... More

Opus 40 is certainly a highly heralded visitor attraction in the Saugerties New York area. Frankly it did not particularly ' light my fire '. Yes I certainly agree that it is quite an amazing work-of-stonework and also a work-of-love taking one man almost forty years to complete. What more to say? I hate to low-ball it but here you...

What a pleasure! This beautiful place is inspiring and peaceful and soulful. We explored together and separately and were completely blown away by the work of one man over 3 decades. His commitment and love of the stones and their ability to create art, walls, paths, water features, places to observe and take in the beauty and vision of this... More

What a great and unique place. This was an old quarry that was made into a work of art. What we loved is that it wasn't just art you stand and looked at, you can walk and climb through this amazing place and admire it from so many different perspectives. There is an amazing museum you can go through as... More

I went to this for the first time a couple of years ago with my mother after we had attended the Garlic Festival nearby. I enjoyed it so much that I took my daughter, who is an artist, and her boyfriend back earlier this year. It is off the beaten path, but it is located on a beautiful tranquil piece... More

I'm a frequent visitor to Opus 40. Many years ago I even considered it as my wedding venue, but we ended up choosing Seamon Park instead, since we were married during the peak of mum season. Opus 40 is truly beautiful and an amazing piece of work. It's an easy stroll for just about anyone. Even those confined to wheel... More

We took a ride to Opus 40 and we were pleasantly surprised. We were expecting just stonework but found they have a nice museum dedicated to the old quarrymen and stone cutters and workers. Harvey Fite the man that built this must have been obsessed with stone. There is thirty six years and six acres of stone work to prove... More

We had this as the main attraction of a tour through the Kingston area and it didn't disappoint. The biggest drawback is my GPS sent me through some semi-challenging roads to get there, for some reason the drive back seemed much easier and simpler though so I don't know what to tell you about that part. It is far off... More

If you have done any work with stone you will not believe a person could do what this guy has done. It is simply unbelievable. I really enjoyed Opus 40. It is hard to believe someone could have thought up a project like that, had the ability to have followed through with it, and have done it so well to... More
