Leisurely stroll nature and art combined.

Hard to find where to exactly enter the park but a nice stroll once you do. A paved walking path made for a leisurely stroll while observing unique art displayed in the grasslands.

On a nice day, this would be a nice place to visit. It is nice because it is free, but it is a little confusing to find it all. There are two sculptures near a lake on one side of a group of buildings. Its very easy to find these because you can see them from the parking lot, but... More

This is local attraction, tucked into, not usually crowded. There isn't to see lot of things but sculptures are neat and the stroll around the park is beautiful. We spent late afternoon here and just soaked in the calm, serene nature.

The walking path through the sculpture garden is scenic in its own right, but the addition of the artworks makes it even more interesting.

This is an interesting place for a walk. These are unusual sculptures. Not really to my taste but interesting all the same. There is no cost to walk here and there are other paths in the area. This town does a nice job with parks and walking/biking paths.

This is a nice little park with a few sculptures with a good size pond, a stream, and some mature trees. Some water fowl to see. At certain times of the year these grounds are used for arts and crafts or festivals like Septemberfest. Definitely nicer to see on a quiet mild day when you aren't pressed for time. Just... More

You can't miss the Muse at the pond ! Amazing sculpture ! But then to find the path leading to the sculptures, it's not so easy :( but once you've found it, it's a delight. There are just a few but high quality ! A wonderful artistic stroll we enjoyed on a sunny day. We'll come again, for sure !

Had a wonderful time here. This was the 1st place we went to when we got to Schaumburg. It was a very pleasant walk with beautiful art. The park itself was just amazing. Very clean. Baby swans floating around. Just lovely.
