Bright iron sculptures twist up from the ground as if they were a strange new variety of plant life.

There are some very famous sculptors who have exhibits in the centre of the Balboa Park near to the Museum of Art, but all of them are of interest.

Basically out in the center of Balboa Park...hard to miss. There is a lot of variety in the types of sculptures. I think there's something for everyone. I particularly love the colorful ones by Niki de Saint Phalle near the Mingei Museum.

Everything in this park is great. The sculpture garden had outdoor dancing and music when I was there.

Another free exhibit it Balboa Park. This one is great and it includes a Rodin amongst the diverse group of sculptures. I have added a few photos, it could have been a lot more.

Glad we came across the sculpture in Balboa park. It was very cool to check out and see and it's free! They have tons of sculptures and you can get up close and personal too.

I found the well manicured lawn amidst interesting sculptures and flora to be very peaceful. Nestled among the major museum attractions and eateries of Balboa Park it was a wonderful place to reflect. So much so that I witnessed many had brought blankets and picnic...More

Small collection, open for roaming before anything else is. Walking amongst sculpture is always a good moment.
