We got a free,very useful walking tour map at the city hall. We saw most of the roughly 40 sculptures in less than two hours and took lots of pictures. Visit the Public library where you can see a carving about the work of Edgar Allan Poe. The only bad thing is that some of the pieces of art have... 更多

The skill level needed to create these works of art is incredible. All of the sculptures are brilliant, but my particular favourites were the bear holding a... 更多
Amazing work. Attention to detail brought many of the sculptures to life. Sadly, a number of the pieces were damaged either by weather or by vandals. If you visit, stop by Visitors Center to obtain map that locates carvings and outdoor artworks.
