  • Great place to take a walk through. Lots of interesting pieces and best of all -- it's free! Gets a bit muddy after rain pr snow melt, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear.  more »

  • Way better than I was expecting! There were dozens and dozens of interesting and unique pieces of sculpture to check out. A fairly easy (flat) walk around the property. Nice that they had some concessions available for purchase (including beer & wine) on live music Saturday. If you enjoy are (at all) it's definitely a good stop.
  • Great for outdoor family fun. Every time we come, we find something new. The sculptures are thought provoking. Some are funny, some are beautiful and some are just bizarre. A lot of creativity. The Art Park is free. The staff are friendly and, while they accept donations, they are not pushy about it. Easy to get there and worth the trip. I definitely recommend checking it out.
  • I love bringing my grandboys here! It's fun to look at all the unique sculptures and see their facial expressions as they try to figure out what it is they are seeing! It's free and hours can be spent here just looking around!
  • Had an awesome time stopping by here and wandering around. A lot of the sculptures here were absolutely bizarre and the descriptions are sometimes a laugh to read!
  • Super place to spend the day with family, friends, or co~workers. Makes for an interesting staff meeting! ;)
