This was a nice hike combined with some fun photo ops. The trails are uphill at the beginning, with some tree roots so that you have to watch your step. All the trails were well groomed, and if you stay within the parameters of the...More

The park is split into two sections, each roughly a mile or more from each other. One has the large towering sculptures and the other is of "smaller", although still pretty big, sculptures in the mill creek area. We only visited the mill creek section....More

There were many life-like sculptures and some fanciful statues, plus at least one the kids could walk up into. Prepare for a lot of walking. A large area with picnic tables by the parking lot was a good place for lunch.

Worth the drive up the big hill. The statues would look amazing in the winter with snow on the ground.

I was excited when some friends invited me to come here to see a concert, 10,000 Maniacs, I've wanted to check out this park so it was a win-win. The park is 450 acres, so I didn't cover the whole grounds, but the sculptures/ statues...More

As others have posted, there are picnic tables scattered around the fields and there are also some benches to use for rest and contemplation. No grills for a barbeque but we enjoyed a sandwich picnic and beverages. The place... More
