  • 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. 
  • some very good outdoor sculptures if you're in the area its worth the 45 minutes it will take to tour. best bet is to check and see if they have any theater or demonstration events going on. 
  • Music and entertainment in the forest. The art work from the artist Anthony Caponi are very educational. It's an inspiration and enjoyable. 
  • The entrance will sneak up on you midway down the hill, so keep your eye out for a driveway like gate with the sign. Its free to enter, just something you may drive by unless you have your GPS pointing this out. The pathways/ trails are well groomed on both sides of the bridge. and this place was completely empty when we came. The art seemed to be in just one area by the two houses, and the rest of the trails looped back to this point. Great for people who get lost easy, because you can't here. We came during a heat and humidity advisory and seeing the swamp its next to, there was not a single mosquito to bother us. That is just unheard of.
  • 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.
  • It's a PokemonGo oasis! Drop a lure and get to work!
  • This a beautiful park. Amazing to walk down a forest trail and suddenly sculpture seems to rise up from the organic ground.
  • This is one of my favorite parks in Twin Cities area.
