This garden is a sculpture garden of twelve different displays. All are very interesting and the stones with the engraved scriptures, hymns, and quotes are inspired to support the sculptures. Admission is free

To appreciate the wonders and uniqueness of Gilgal, one has to visit. Words cannot describe the art that is contained within the small garden. Treat yourself to some strange and wonderful sights and visit Gilgal Gardens.

Was very difficult to find....It's in the middle of neighborhoods, emphasis on hood! It is incredibly small, like the size of a backyard...sculptures were interesting, but would I say take young kids, definitely no! Plus it takes five minutes see entire park....not worth the drive.

This is otherworldly! I sometimes still have to pinch myself that a Mormon bishop was creating art like this in the 1950s and before. This is really unique. I give this 5 stars because it's unique and beautifully curated. Sometimes the pamphlet box at the...More

When I was a kid, my dad discovered this place when we were going to Chuck-A-Rama. It was not a park at the time but a private residence. He walked up and ask the owner if he see it. It is a amazing place. Since...More
