Randyland is a garden made from repurposed materials found, bought & donated.

Property owner and dreamer, Randy Gilson, started in 1982 saving the empty

neighborhood lots and streetscaping 30 blocks into public art gardens. Randyland

(the yellow castle) was purchased at auction in 1996 for $10,000 and the dream began to take form.

  • I don't review things often - this is my first on Google - but this was an amazing experience. Randy has created happiness for himself and shares it with everyone he meets. This is a happy place - and very few exist today in our modern world.
  • Absolutely fun place to see. It's a visual feast of colors and artful objects. Gaudy but great. It's just some guys house and patio but he went nuts decorating it and adding to the fun. Bring your camera.
  • Coolest place I have been in a while. Randy is a really cool and nice guy who has created some awesome art in his lot for everyone to see and visit for free. I urge anybody who visits to make a donation to keep this place going.
