“Beautiful Park, relaxing stroll, take a picinic”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

This is a beautiful park of sculptures nestled around various small lakes. There are plenty of benches to rest from your walk, the dirt paths are flat and even,open areas and secluded coves for that romantic picnic, kiss or proposal. I'm partial to this park as my brother was married here it was truly a beautiful outdoor setting on the island (and freee) - no need to purchase flowers - the beauty around you is enough. Bring your own water, etc. There are restrooms across from the entrance; as well as a place to rent scooters. Fun, relaxing day!

“Art in the Park - Roche Harbor style”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

When your travels take you to San Juan Island and it's a sunny day, be sure to visit the Sculpture Park near to Roche Harbor on the Northern end of the island. The setting is peaceful and the trails wander through grassy pastures to tranquil lakes to startling vistas to shaded woodlands. All the while your lovely walk is interrupted with bizzare, whimsical, stout, touching and meaningful art pieces in every sculture media known to man and beast. Give yourself a couple of hours and look at them all.

“Amazing sculpture garden.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Visited the sculpture garden in Roche Harbor yesterday. Well worth the drive from Friday Harbor.

Many beautiful (about 100 pieces of art) and unique pieces in a beautiful, walkable park- like setting.

Kids, grandparents and everyone in between really enjoyed this peaceful outing.

Side note : cleanest porta-potty I've ever seen.

“Creative”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

There is a variety of art work and some very creative pieces. Give yourself a solid hour (or more) to walk through the trails.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

This little spot is worth the stop on the way out to Roche Harbor. We enjoyed touring the fields and looking at all of the beautiful and eclectic art work. It was a great place to take photos and enjoy the sunshine.
