  • We went to this park in February, where temps were in the single digit. Most sculptures where covered with snow, but what we saw I was not very impressed. The LOVE sculpture is In Philadelphia and var...  more »
  • Even full of snow (we visited in December) the sculpture garden is beautiful. There is one of the symbols of the city, the Spoonbrigde and Cherry, among other beautiful sculptures. It is opposite the Museum Walker. Close to the city centre and the Basilica of Santi Mary. Easy access and easy parking. Worth visiting!

  • Great place to walk and explore the grounds. Beautiful and whimsical sculptures. The newly renovated location is fantastic!
  • Really fun to walk through during nice weather, even if you're not a person that particularly enjoys art. Had fun just looking at the different unique sculptures and cracking jokes and puns about them.
  • After being closed for renovations since last spring, it is good to be back on the grounds. Those that are familiar with the place may experience mixed emotions upon seeing the revamped space. I miss a few of the older sculptures, especially those I had happy memories with my family. It is nice to see some familiar older sculptures, like getting reacquainted with old friends. There is some excitement and wonder with the new sculptures, and I look forward to forging new experiences and memories with them. The removal of some foliage makes the place feel less cozy, but also opens things up. I like that you can see more of the garden from any vantage point. It will be fun to see how the new plants and trees change the feel of the place as time marches on.
  • A nice place for a walk. Many different sculptures to look at. It has been recently renovated and as nice as it looks I liked it better back then with all the trees. It's still a nice place to visit and get some pictures of the Cherry on a Spoon.
  • Excellent place to spend the afternoon with your family, or friends if you are visiting Minnesota. A lots beautiful art work and all just steps from downtown Minneapolis
