  • A beautiful place to walk and be in contact with nature. Sculptures? There are some beautiful, but there is still no enough, although it appears that the study - workshop works in more works for this beautiful space. It is very close to the Lake, can take your pet to walk with so strap and monthly have interesting cultural events. Bad, need more and better toilets.

  • Hard to find sense of path direction with tons of leaves all over. But very quiet and peaceful. Lots of trees, picnic area, walking paths.
  • Brought a group of 11 to 13 year olds here they enjoyed walking around in the woods finding art. Then we made bird seed art and played a nature inspired game with one of the staff. Wonderful place to be for an afternoon!
  • One of my favorite parks for an afternoon in "the woods." Close enough for a quick visit, it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere.
  • It's a beautiful place with lots of paths to choose from, but I was expecting more art. Every corner I turned I was disappointed hoping to see somthing. But, it's very relaxing and peaceful otherwise.
  • Great place for family to walk around and enjoy nature while appreciating the art.
