Reviewed 23 April 2012

Strolling around Grounds for Sculpture is like visiting a magical, beautiful world that you never want to leave. Everything about the place is pleasant: the sculptures of course, the landscaping, the trees and flowers. Strolling through the grounds is enjoyable for people of all ages, except perhaps for very young children. There are places to sit and rest along the way, too. The staff are nice and accommodating, the sculptures are intriguing and fun -- a great way to spend a nice-weather day!

“Great find, gets busy quickly”
Reviewed 15 April 2012 via mobile

Go in the morning or late in the day to miss the masses. Well worth a visit, very diverse range of sculptures covering all tastes in a great lakeside setting. Nice to see that a number of sculptures have escaped

Reviewed 12 April 2012

what a lovely place to spend an afternoon. my husband and i happened upon these huge sculptures and were glad we did. it was a beautiful day and we love to walk so this was perfect for us. can't speak to the food since we did not eat there. i can't wait to take my grandchildren there next time they visit.

allow some time to walk around - we will definitely be back.
