  • 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.

  • Natural beauty intermixed with sculptures and statues, a perfect combination of culture and nature. Lots of paths to choose from and more than enough art to warrant a couple of visits at least.
  • 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.
  • Nice park. Pretty trails. Quiet. Some of the sculptures are a little "adult".
  • 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.
