  • A great little hike through natural beaty and interesting art sculpture. It would be great if they refreshed the work they display, perhaps rotate a few newer pieces in the mix. 
  • I have been twice. The walk is nice (good wild raspberries to snack on) and the sculptures are interesting. 
  • loved it, loved it, loved it, sculpture and the beauty of the forest are a beauty to experience. A must do when in Haliburton county

  • A nice outdoors art exhibit, built into the hiking trails. We had a wonderful outing, walking with the kids for over an hour. Many more hiking trails accessible from the site, with dozens of kilometers to explore
  • Nice easy walk through the forest and enjoying some great works of art
  • A very unique walk in the forest. My favourite sculptures ar the Dry Stone Wall and the Lamppost.
