An awe-inspiring experience to be in a gorgeous nature area experiencing sculpture as artistic as I've ever seen. Beautiful, moving, enjoyable in a wordless way.

“Great place to stop by and visit.”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

I live on San Juan Island and I love to visit this park alone or with visitors. It is fun to see the sculptures and discuss what we see as we walk over many acres of land. It is a beautiful and well-kept setting adjacent to Roche Harbor resort. You can bring a picnic and relax (there is a restroom, too) so it is a very enjoyable time for families or groups and you can also bring your pet (just pick up after your pet because that is the only thing that drives people bananas.). Also, there is no entrance fee but a $5 suggested donation helps pay for upkeep. Kids are welcome for free. It's a great spot to include in your visit.

“So many sculptures & walking trails in a beautiful park setting.”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

You wouldn't know it from the road but there were more than 125 sculptures on 20 acres with 5 nature trails. I loved the beautiful gardens in front which lead to wide open fields, then through a forest, along a bay and around a pond. The grounds have been mowed in such a way as to lead you from one sculpture to another and the artwork is enhanced by the natural surroundings. They even had a Starfish Project for the children which allowed them to make their own sculptures with driftwood and other recycled materials. A fun day and I'll definitely do it again when visiting San Juan Island.

“Stunning sculpture park on a stunning island.”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Unbelievable collection of stunning artwork laid out on twenty manicured acres. Trails and paths through the park took us to many new discoveries and the natural beauty of the place was over the top.

“An wonderful experience for the family!”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

20 acres of unique art in a gorgeously landscaped setting. There are well over 100 amazing sculptures that will get your creative juices flowing. TAKE YOUR CAMERA - they have an annual photo contest - email you best photos when you get home. In 2014 there will be a friendship pole for everyone to sign, and when its full it will be permanently erected. There are over 30,000 visitors a year but it is never crowded. Its just a great place to spend an afternoon - an idyllic setting on a magical island. Admission is by a voluntary contribution of $5 per person - kids and dogs are free.
