The work here is amazing, we stop by every time we are in the area just to see what is new. You have to look closely as objects you would never expect to see are part of each piece.

So many sculptures made of everyday items but put together in such a neat way...I surely would never have thought of using old wrenches, a cheese grater, etc. to make interesting art! Worth taking the time to explore.

When traveling to Galena, Illinois, you don't want to miss West Street Sculpture Park. Take a walk along the trails hidden in the woods and view the many sculptures on display. Wonderful, fanciful and imaginative. Loved the giant tinker toy and the bike in the box sculptures. All unique and creative.

About a block and a half off Gear Street on West Street, sort of hidden away but worth the short drive to find. Free admission. Open dawn to dusk.

Galena is privileged to have such a great variety of artists working in the community, one of those artists, sculptor John Martinson's sculpture park is on a grand scale and worth the time to find. Easy for me as I drive by it several times a week but probably a bit off the beaten path for visitors unfamiliar to the Galena area. He has a unique perspective incorporating a sense of humor into his work. I highly recommend taking the time to stop by.

We stumbled on this while out geocaching, since there is a cache located in the park. To find the cache, we had to walk around the park and insert the requested numbers found on the signs into the GPS. So we walked thru the whole park, and I'm glad we did. There was so much to see, more than you'd ever guess when driving by. Though the downtown stuff was fun, this was a nice surprise and a welcome change of pace.
