This was such a welcome surprise. We drove down the road and parked the car. Then we just wandered about. There were so many wonderful, imaginative metal sculptures. We loved it.
If you like outdoor art this is the place! Many sculptures to see, a bit quirky but worth the 5 minute drive from town. Lots trails with art, wear walking shoes!
We only had a few minutes before a tour and then it started raining so we were not able to spend as much time as we liked.

We were able to meet the artist, John, and visit with him in his studio. It was a beautiful day to take our time and wander about. John encouraged is to take all the photos we wanted. We even had five deer pop out of the woods as we were wandering.

Bring your camera and wear close-toed shoes - there are some cool parts that involve a little walking/hiking. This artist is a creative visionary who should be applauded for not only his... 更多
Very interesting use of materials in a fun and whimsical way. Kudos to the artist who goes to great length to create his sculptures! Take your time and really study each piece.
Located on West Street between Gear and South, the Sculpture Park is best accessed by vehicle as West and Gear streets are both quite hilly.
