“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

We have visited this park a number of times over the years. It contains a world class collection of large sculptures. The park grounds are lovely and lovingly cared for. The pond comes with a flock of geese, so be careful where you walk.

“It's CLOSED until 2013”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2012

Lovely manicured park with wonderful sculptures by famous artists (Miro, Calder, Max Ernst etc.) - - BUT !!! The sculpture garden and grounds is CLOSING to visitors on December 1, 2012, not to reopen until late 2015 due to construction.

Definitely worth a visit when it reopens!

“Thanks to Pepsico”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
