  • This is a wonderful activity for families with young children. We brought our dog along with as well. Great little activity for everyone. Some wonderful art and great views!  more »
  • The art park offers trails with many sculptures and poetry stones along the way. There are three legs to the hike, so you can take a short or long hike depending on your whims. It is a very hilly walk...  more »
  • If you like to see a frame of a boat, a plane and some sails placed between the trees this is the art park to visit. Bring your hiking boots, because this trail is VERY steep in some places.  more »
  • Great quiet place for a walk. Our dogs love it. Be aware it's not flat.
  • A lovely casual hiking spot, with several interesting things to see and note along the way. There is a spot with an amazing view at the very north end of the trail.
  • Great place for a walk inn every season. Peaceful and beautiful, and a piece of art around every bend for inspiration.
  • Meh. Not very good from an art perspective, but a good chance to get away for a quick walk in nature.
  • A hike and art museum rolled into one!
