This is a hidden gem on Milwaukee's north side. You won't find it by accident but it is well worth the trip--an eclectic collection of interesting sculptures from all over. Thanks to Mrs. Bradley for leaving a peaceful, relaxing environment full of interesting artwork.

Had a nice afternoon exploring the grounds. There is some interesting sculptors there and a lot to discuss! Nice place to take a stroll with your honey or just to get some alone time and see some amazing art!

This is a nice place to take a break and wander around some green space. Powerful sculptures scattered around grassy areas and pond. I saw some wild turkeys along side a large metal sculpture. This is a self- guided tour, with no route to follow...More
