The Incredibly Unique Park That’s Right Here In Minneapolis’ Own Backyard
We often imagine parks as plots of well landscaped land with an abundance of trees and often a playground for children. The notion that all parks be a certain way is disrupted in Minneapolis. The city is the proud home of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden – one of the largest urban sculpture gardens in the country with 40 permanent installations and a variety of other pieces on a temporary basis.
The Sculpture Garden recently had a makeover. It reopened to the public in June 2017, and deserves your attention now more than ever. Take a peek at some of the park’s installations to appreciate how incredibly unique it is:
