“Thanks to Pepsico”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

Excellent place for a weekend walk. Very interesting example of the modern garden landscaping and architecture. Fun for adults and kids who can literally touch the fish in the pond. Bring your camera!

“Brig the kids and dogs, or go solo - it's all wonderful”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

Classic, perfect, pristine, magnificent, no-blade-of-grass-out-of-place formal gardens and varied, impressive massive sculptures from world-renown artists on 160+ acres surrounding Pepsi corporate headquarters. Walking path throughout, benches for resting/meditating, easy access, parking, all free. Be sure to visit the courtyard mini-gardens inside the perimeter of the office building (which itself is an architectural wonder). Plan for two hours minimum, and bring the kids - there's a picnic area on the backside, too.

“Great Outdoor Sculpture Park at Pepsi Corp. HQ”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

Very relaxing and manicured setting. Great for picnics but DO NOT bring coca cola (LOL one of their attendants was mad about this). Also good for exercise amids beautiful art work, and for sitting around and reading the NY Times. Highly recommended, and if you like this, go to Storm King Sculpture, which is in the wilds of Kingston, NY.

“A perfect afternoon.”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

This place has an excellent sculpture collection well worth the visit. Be prepared for strolling in perfectly groomed grounds with a foliage selection that mimics that of a botanical garden. We went on a no school Monday and we practically had the grounds to ourselves. Starting off with a picnic next to the pond in the designated area makes for a perfect early fall afternoon.
