I work down the street from the garden and love walking by. It's truely an inspiration-- native plants mixed with amazing sculptures (all by local artists). Some people are disappointed by the size because it occupies the space of an old residential lot, but what it lacks in space it makes up for in vision and creativity. There is nothing else like it in Little Rock.

The results of the vision of one generous civic patron who envisioned a sculpture garden in a depressed stretch of Main Street. It has catapulted into a lively section of town, with a cornbread festival, a bakery, green store and new Root Cafe nearby. Definitely worth a visit.
