Free Public Tours

Every month, May through October, weather permitting, trained volunteer docents lead informal and informative walking tours of the Sculpture Park. The docents discuss each piece along the paths, describing the concepts, materials and the artists.

Tours begin promptly at 1:00 PM and are approximately one hour in length, subject to weather conditions. Tours cover one section of the Sculpture Park each month.  No need to register and all ages are welcome. There is a lot of walking, but wheelchairs with someone to push are welcome. Dogs on leash and bicycles also welcome.

Download the Otocast App on your smartphone to hear recorded descriptions of each sculpture, many by the artists themselves.  https://www.otocast.com/
