Sculpture in the Park
One of the largest parts of the gardens is the 35-acre Sculpture Park. The vast meadows, ponds and grassy knolls showcase works from more than 30 artist. It is like an open-air museum. I thought I would share some of my favorite pieces with you.

As you can see my children were rather enamoured with this piece.

My next post will be on the wetland habitat of the gardens which is teaming with plants and animal life.
