  • This is a small - ish sculpture garden located in a hilltop park. There are some cool things to see, but not more than an hour's worth to do. Bathroom are nice, though.
  • Beautiful park with meandering trails winding past many sculptures in a number of styles from classic to modern. Even my middle-schoolers loved it. Our dog enjoyed the tranquility of the shade-parked car.
  • A really cool little spot. Well maintained and carefuly cared for. Every piece is elaborated on and thoughtfully chosen, I thought. Worth a visit, even just once.
  • Super cool outdoor sculpture collection. This park is a jewel.
  • It was very pretty. You're not allowed to take animals in there!
