I wish this site were better advertised. It's such a gem and is worthy of more Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City visitors. Spectacular art is incorporated into wooded trails and bay-side. The effect is lovely, peaceful, and inspiring. There's not a huge sign, so...More

Take some time to walk the park paths and enjoy all the pieces of art. The walk provides a nice combination of views of nature and installed art pieces.

Nice wide path that runs near the Lake. Art sculptures are set along the path every few hundred feet. Lots of parking (free) and areas to park and lock up your bicycles.

I just put in Art in the Park Elk Rapids and it showed up. The entrance was obscure so trust the GPS.
