More than 100 sculptures -- gorillas, giraffes, big pigs, and sledding kids among them -- are permanently displayed among the trees, plants, and ponds at this city park, and a few more are added each year. This is also the site of Sculpture in the Park, the largest juried outdoor sculpture show in the United States, which takes place each year over the second weekend in August. The show, with all submissions available for purchase, features over 1,000 works by about 200 different sculptors from across the United States and Canada. Show aside, this park is worth a stroll any time of year. Allow 1 hour.
