What a gorgeous corporate headquarters and what a gift to the community to make it available for people to walk through. And the sculpture is terrific

“A perfect afternoon.”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This place has an excellent sculpture collection well worth the visit. Be prepared for strolling in perfectly groomed grounds with a foliage selection that mimics that of a botanical garden. We went on a no school Monday and we practically had the grounds to ourselves. Starting off with a picnic next to the pond in the designated area makes for a perfect early fall afternoon.

The PepsiCo sculpture gardens are terrific at any time of the year. Each season brings something different when I walk through here.

“A feast for the mind and eye.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

A serene and most pleasant afternoon among works of art, many on very large scale, and frequently by well-known artists. The garden setting is also vast, but accessible via intimate walkways with multiple benches for rest, observation and contemplation. As mentioned by another, this delight is something well-worth paying for, yet it is free! (I just wish some of the thought and creativity which went into it had found its way across the street to the Soviet style SUNY-Purchase campus.)

“Sculpture and Gardens Exist in Harmony Here”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Hats off to Donald Kendall who imagined an atmosphere of creativity and experimentation between sculpture and gardens. The gardens are an art form in their own right, complemented by the carefully situated sculptures. Form and texture are planned well here using trees, shrubs and plants with their different colors, shapes and scents. To see a David Wayne or Alexander Calder sculpture among the well manicured gardens was a delight to the eye. What a beautiful and peaceful retreat in the heart of Westchester County.
