Quirky fun.

Spend a couple of hours strolling through the gardens. There are some very fun, crazy, quirky sculptures.

From the parking lot it looked like it would take about a half hour to see the sculptures. But the park has many trails that lead beyond the main open area. The paths were quiet and peaceful that morning in October. There was art and poetry around every turn. I ended up staying a couple hours. By the time I... More

There were very many sculptures in close proximity to each other. I prefer a piece of art to have more space around it in order to appreciate it better.

Every time I visit the sculpture park, it's spread into more fields and covers more area. That means there are always new sculptures to find, though some are definitely old favourites that have been there for a decade! It's a great location with a pretty pond, and just perfect for whiling away an hour or two on a warm, sunny... More

Enjoyed the openness of the park and the artwork, especially the quotes by D.M. Jenkins, very thought provoking. Beautiful setting by the resort and airport. The trails were well marked and pond beautiful. It was one of the highlights of my trip.

20 acres sounded like a lot of walking, but it really wasn't difficult or long at all. Plenty to see and to stop and read and ponder the poetry and enjoy the scenery. 5 self-guided trails are good. Make sure you look at the map in the beginning and take the provided umbrella if it's hot.

Trying to find something unique to do, we ran across this little place. Kind of a free walk stop. Lots of interesting scultures. Some that didn't make sense but still fun.

Went with family while staying nearby. Lots of unique pieces scattered around a 20ac open park setting. Self guided and easy for all ages. Some paths yield surprises nestled in the woods. Make sure you allow at least 45m+ to see most of the pieces. Voluntary $5/person admission.

From the road it looks like a small, unique, quirky little park but in reality it is huge. Nice winding paths through trees with unusual art displayed along the way. Much, much more enjoyable than I thought it would be.

You just never know what's around the corner in this quirky park. Couldn't stop ourselves from taking a snap and a snap there. Can't wait to show the family back home. Travelled all over and were impressed with the quality of many of the pieces here and there amongst the many acres. A nifty way to while away an hour... More
