“Lot of walking”
Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

Ok first off I am not an art person. I don't know what I was suppose to be looking at with most of the sculptures here. On the other hand it is a very nice park with lots and lots of walking trails which would be great to bring a picnic and kill a couple hours. It is a bit much walking for younger children.

“Truly unique”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

To my families dismay, I am a sucker for outlandish attractions. When visiting someplace I check out roadsideamerica.com and look for the best unique attractions. This was near the top of the list. There are many sculptures of many variety. And everyone had a lot of fun taking a lot of fun pictures. I cannot say you should go out of your way to visit, but if you have extra time, you may be surprised at how much you will enjoy this treasure.

“Walking around art!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

It's a wonderful place to take a walk or short hike while experiencing the art and sculpture. The pieces are not so close together that you feel overwhelmed, nor are they so far apart that you can't experience the majority of them in a few hours. The artists and materials are so varied that if one sculpture isn't to your taste, move on and the next one might be! There are benches and picnic tables scattered around and at least two sets of restrooms.

“Beautiful afternoon, wonderful stroll and interesting art too”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

Perfect free activity for a couple hours on a nice day. We did not do this, but I would recommend a picnic. Even if you do not necessarily enjoy art, go and try something a little different than you might otherwise do. Nice walk on mainly flat ground, there are area to hike "off path" to some additional sculptures, but we did not do this as one member of our party was feeling under the weather. They request you do not climb on the sculpture, but some of them are low lying on the ground, and our kids enjoyed sitting in/on/next to them for photos. Great family activity for families with children of all ages.

“Walking Thru the Park is Very Special!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

This is a very special place if you like the outdoors, art, and want to have a memorable day with somebody special! The Sculpture's are "Unique", some quite large, other quite different.

On a nice day enjoy the free parking, free admission and splendid "Walk thru the woods" as well as "The Pasture" for those who maybe are not as adventuresome! Don't forget your camera!
