This is a lovely spot to view fall foliage, modern art sculptures and wildlife. We enjoyed 2+ hours walking the well-paved, gently rolling trail in this park located near our hotel. We saw a flock of wild turkeys foraging near a cluster of trees. A...More

Personally, the first time I went to check these out, I only had one sculpture that I was interested in and went for photography's sake but found myself intrigued by what else lay down the path. The main problem was that some of them weren't...More

I am not an art or sculpture lover. However, I do enjoy a relaxing walk. When I first saw these sculptures, I was less than impressed. It even bothered me at times, that these things were put there. After reading their names and descriptions, though,...More

The Griffiss International Sculpture Park is a fairly new installation. We were looking for something new to do since we’ve been to Rome many times. I discovered the sculpture park on Trip Advisor and we decided to go. It’s basically an outdoor walking path. You...More
