Bring the kids to this outdoor sculpture garden where the Cat in the Hat, the Grinch, and other beloved Dr. Seuss characters are immortalized in bronze, life-size statues all designed by Geisel's step-daughter, sculptor Lark Grey Dimond-Cates.

The garden is very fun and interesting. Because of the heat, the sculptures were roped off and we couldn't get close to them, but we could still take photos and sit in the grass and relax for a few hours

Great sculptures, in a beautiful setting, and on a cooler day the kids can play on them. The gardens were cool though, with some big trees providing shade.

There are a handful of Seuss sculptures in the central garden in the middle of the Springfield Museums courtyard. It’s free to see them and fun to walk amongst them. Lovely to stop here, particularly if going to the museums.

We wanted to check out the sculpture garden while in Springfield, but didn't have time to go into the museum. The museum compound itself is definitely charming. The sculptures in the sculpture park are quite well done, but there aren't actually that many of them....More
