I love the Walker Sculpture Garden. It is very user friendly. The sculpture is varied and very interesting. The blue rooster (cock) is a great addition.

The sculpture garden embodies an incredible array of whimsical modern art that is guaranteed to make all but the most cynical people smile with appreciation. The cherry and spoon have become an iconic symbol of downtown Minneapolis and the addition of the bright blue rooster...More

The sculptures delight the eye and stir the imagination in a wondrous way. You don't have to like them all, but you will surely find some that capture and captivate. Bring the children along.

Let's be clear, I'm not a fan of contemporary art. At all. That being said the sculptures at the sculpture garden still managed to capture my imagination and interest. Obviously the Cherry & The Spoon are a must see as they're one of the symbols...More

Disappointed. Not many sculptures. Nothing spectacular. Seems like the grounds were a little unkept. It was misting rain so we didn’t get out and walk around, but you could see the sculptures from the car.

Of course the iconic Minneapolis sculpture of Spoonbridge and Cherry and the Blue Rooster are here. Always seem to bring our out of town guests here. Right by the Walker Art Museum and across from the Basilica. Nice walking park. Have not been there since...More

It's a nice place to walk next to an interstate highway. The sculptures are not worth the trip if there's a lot of traffic.

I'd recommend the 6, as it's a high frequency line! The stop would be Vineland. The stop is pretty easy to see coming as it's the first stop outside of downtown. If it isn't too cold though, I'd recommend walking down... More

Yes it's free and you just walk around at your own pace. We got there early and found street parking very close. If it's busy I am not sure where to park.
