A bit abandoned and unkempt. It probably was a great way to spend a few hours with friends or family out in the open some time ago but the works of art are at least 60% in degrade . The place needs a lot of work to bring it back to a level which justifies the long walk to the attraction. Right now, it's a disappointment with just a few hints left to show what was undoubtedly a wonderful idea.
Apart from the run-down operas of art, the pathways and directions are in need of refreshing. It's been two years since those high winds caused damage.

Pre- booked this wonderful excursion at the Tourist Office in Levico Terme.
Free with the Valsugana card which your hotel can provide , otherwise about 20 euros including transport . Excursion runs on Wednesdays from 2pm to 7pm.
Truly scenic drive through the valley and on arrival we split into two groups, Italian speaking and English speaking.
Our guide was excellent. She covered the lower part of the site first (Montura) and pointed out the devastation caused by the storm last year. There's still plenty to see though. Great fun for the kids who size wise had the best photo opportunities !
Short coffee break and minibus to the Malga Costa -even more breathtaking .
Art and Nature complement each other perfectly here and for 'invited' artists , it certainly must be a great honour to contribute to this 'Grand Design'.
The famous Tree Cathedral is Top Attraction of course but I just loved it all !
Quite a bit of walking but relatively easy.
Great experience.

The Vaia hurricane of 29 October 2018 destroyed much of this open air museum, the initial pathway through the forest is no longer accessible and the visit is limited to the park at Malga Costa and the nearby villa Strobele. Still, it is very much worth a visit because of the new exhibits, the knotted tree trunk bring a spectacular addition that was just being finished as we passed by.
The signs at the entrance refer to a 45 minute visit of the park, but that is way too short. I would recommend at least 2 hours to appreciate the two dozen exhibits.

We drive to the location and park, then a man walks up to us and asks us why we're there, as if we are trespassing. We didn't see the sign to not drive up the hill, but there are two parking lots and I find it hard to understand, on a chilly December day, why we would be expected to park on the side of the road, and walk a kilometer to an empty parking lot. He acted like he was doing us an extraordinary favor by letting us park there, but we had to move the car to the other side of the parking lot. This is after we are already parked and outside of the car. Why did he make us move 50 feet? As some kind of measure of control for himself so he can feel like he has the upperhand? Ridiculous. But we had driven a ways to get there, so we put our feet in our mouth and went on. He should have been grateful we were there, lucky that someone went out of there way on a chilly day to walk around a park outside. No one else was there the entire time we were. And yet he wanted to make us feel like he was doing us a favor by allowing us to pay an overpriced 8 euro per person for a small park. Good grief.
