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 on Sundays or 10 AM on Saturdays and are approximately one hour in length, subject to weather conditions. Tours cover one section of the Sculpture Park each month.  Some are on Saturdays and some on Sundays,  check below for details.  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.
