  • Located a 15/20 minute walk from Center, you should go to see the sculpture Spoonbrige and cherry, which is icon of the city. It is close to the Loring park which is also convenient to visit. Unfortunately my phone ran out of battery and I could not take a photo in the sculpture. It is nothing special but there is also no parks or squares near the Center so it's a good place for hiking.

  • 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.
