The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden was created over 30 years ago and was among the pioneers of its kind in the United States. The Garden is a partnership between the Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Parks system. There are more than 40 sculptures in the park to enjoy seeking out, most iconic among them the Spoonbridge and Cherry - a favored symbol of the Twin Cities. It is a great free, outdoor destination for families looking for a relaxing afternoon.  If you need a play break, walk across the Irene Hixon Whitney Pedestrian Bridge -- art in its own right -- to Loring Park for a little play time.

Minneapolis Sculpture Park Details

The Minneapolis parks department and the Walker Art Center performed a major reconstruction of the park and celebrated the grand reopening in June 2017. The project focused on the garden's infrastructure and future sustainability. During the reconstruction some of the art was featured in other parks around the city, but the sculptures are back in their rightful places.

Artist-Designed Mini Golf

Sometimes located on the grounds of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, the miniature golf course has has also been located on the Walker rooftop. Artists design each hole for a unique experience. Mini golf is usually open from May through September, however, it was cancelled for the summer of 2020.

Anne and Joy had a chance to play miniature golf at the Walker a couple years ago and wrote about it here.
