Each area of art requires its own set of criteria when determining good and bad, i.e. painting, sculpture, printmaking, craft, conceptual etc. Personally I hold originality to be important in this determination. For contemporary artists that can be tough.

This is a lovely place to spend the afternoon. The sculptures are interesting and fun to photograph. The sculptures are spaced out nicely, so it does not feel crowded.

On a nice day it's a lovely outdoor spot to visit. Just be prepared for a large space to walk. The sculptures are widely spaced.

I visited the sculpture park after a business meeting to relax. The layout of the park is great and well maintained. We both enjoyed all of the sculptures.

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.
