  • If you're expecting something on par with the Walker Sculpture Garden, you'll be disappointed. But if you're looking for a nice walk in a wooded area with bonus sculptures, this is your place. Note th...  more »
  • There is a great trail system here and beautiful woods to hike through. There is no art or just some stones on the parking lot side of the art grounds. You actually have to go under the road to get to...  more »
  • Caponi Art Park is a nice place to walk around and see art! It's like an outdoor art museum. I don't believe it's open in winter, but you can check.  more »
  • Great quirky park in the south metro. Regular open hours, lots of art, neat walking paths, all free. Parents go for a different free outing, kids go for all the pokestops.
  • Its a beautiful forested area, however bathroom facilities are minimal, there aren't many sculptures, and there's very little information to guide you through the sculpture walk. The trails are not stroller friendly.
  • Neat hike, but not very stroller friendly and I was expecting a greater variety of art.
  • Great park but in a not so great location.
  • A good place for a quiet walk. I had my visit on the last day they were open for the season, Oct 31st. There was only 1 other couple that was there during our visit. Things may have just been slow because the owner/founder of the park had died just weeks before. It was a really beautiful walk on the trails around the park to look at some sculptures. This park is very popular with Ingress players because each of the sculptures are portals in the game. Expect to see people walking around looking at their phones while there as they are playing the game. The park is only open during the spring through the fall, and there is no cost for parking or admission. They do have donation stations up, and papers asking for volunteers. I emailed asking about being a volunteer, but it was never replied to.
