  • Good combination of culture and nature, this sculpture garden is one of the must see places in the Twin Cities. It requires some walking, can bring your whole family.

  • This is a small sculpture garden within walking distance from the city center. This is where the famous "Cherry on the Spoon" is located. Take a walk in a not so cold day, relax and enjoy.

  • Cool place, got to stop by while visiting my sister at U of M. Unfortunately for the whole summer and then her first year it will be closed.. You can see the spoon from the bridge, which is fun to walk across. Sadly the actual area is fully torn up, and won't be open when we come back to pick her up at the end of the year. Hopefully we can walk around next year..
  • While my daughter and I didn't really get to visit the garden due to it being under construction we did walk over to it and take a look from the highway overpass leading to it from Loring Park. It was a bit humorous to see the giant cherry and spoon still sitting in the middle of the garden construction.
  • One of the best parts of the city. Impossible to miss, just look for the giant spoon and cherry.
  • Great spot to hang out and view some beautiful sculptures.
  • Awesome place for a leisurely stroll with friends or family.
