Whenever we have out-of-towners visiting, we swing by the Sculpture Garden. It is a great park for a quick walk through when it is cold out, or to stroll and linger on a beautiful Spring/Summer day.

One of my all-time favorite art parks to visit in my hometown of Minneapolis! Wander around the park and enjoy a wonderful view of The Basilica of Saint Mary and Loring Park.

Well maintained and very nice to walk around. The sculputres are all neat, when we went in 2018 there was constuction happening, it is a bit off the beaten path from downtown but worth the visit!

We enjoyed the sculpture garden. I can see how it would be really nice in the summer, we still enjoyed it in the winter. The spoon and cherry was super cool and we also like the big blue rooster. The main sidewalks were cleared and...More

We visit the art garden several times a year and enjoy our time with the kids (now teenagers). I'm not a huge fan of the "native grass" areas as it is covered with weeds.

A plethora of sculptures pique curiosity and interest - very different than it was even a few years ago with a new layout and new sculptures. The Spoonbridge and Cherry are still a favorite centerpiece - wonderful view of downtown!

Every time we visit Minneapolis we come to this park. It is eye appealing, fun, relaxing, excellent for pictures and most of all, unique. We live the giant spoon and pond. Highly recommended. Great place for groups, family or just a stroll on your own.

I'd recommend the 6, as it's a high frequency line! The stop would be Vineland. The stop is pretty easy to see coming as it's the first stop outside of downtown. If it isn't too cold though, I'd recommend walking down... More

Yes it's free and you just walk around at your own pace. We got there early and found street parking very close. If it's busy I am not sure where to park.
