A great concept that I looked forward to seeing. I made the 30 mile drive downtown to see this last night, a Friday evening. We reached the park about 8pm. The park was completely black/unlit. The only way I knew I was in the right place was by seeing the 2 unmistakable suspension booms that hold the sculpture up. It... More

I had read in many places that this was a must see when downtown. We went during the day and were disappointed. The gardens of Arizona Center were much nicer and relaxing. To me it was basically just an expanse of grass. Not a lot of landscaping. The art work was cool. If you are in the area, stop by,... More

We saw this during the day as we were walking back to our hotel. We asked a local and he gave us background about this work of art. Thank goodness for his suggestion to come back at night and see it when it's all lit it. Fantastic!

I was handling PR for a festival in the park called Phoenix Lights. It was the perfect size and setting for the event. Plenty of natural spots to relax in the shade and a great view of the city. Definitely go to check out the floating sculpture, entitled Her Secret Is Patience.

This is just a park with an art piece in it. While the art piece was cool at night, and there was a band playing, I guess I expected more. Also, as an out-of-towner, the name was deceiving. This is not a 'space-related' park, it is just a park.
