The Lagacy Art Park is a delightful unique place to view unusaul scuptures in a great outdoor setting! On Friday evenings in the summer they have outdoor concerts in a delightful setting with a "bring your own" opportunity to include food and / or beverages and enjoy the wonderful talent.

I am not an experienced hiker, but I really enjoyed this hike. The inclines were a bit challenging, but the scenery and art work was very interesting. I definitely recommend this experience and would do it again.

Wow. What an inspiring, magnificent site. Follow winding trails through the forest taking in amazing sculptures. This is a mixed level activity. There is a short tail which is accessible to those who cannot make the climbs associated with the bulk of the park. Secondary to that is an initial loop for folks who don't have time to explore the... More

I attended the Joshua Davis and Terry Barber concerts there over the last two weekends. The venue is outdoors and provides a very beautiful setting for a concert. The park has new artwork and a new path. If you have an opportunity, you must walk the park to see the artwork and stay for a concert if you can.

Walk was neither easy nor hard. Interesting turns and some hills but well groomed. The art itself was very unique and enjoyable. Overall well done.

This isn't a casual strolling park. This is an uphill climb and even difficult in areas due to sand and washout. It's a great activity to burn off the ice creams you have enjoyed during your stay in the resort. It is located within the resort in the back towards the residential homes.

My 14 yr old daughter and I visited the Legacy Art trail. It was nicely layed out. Had fun art to look at while hiking. We took advantage of the hills and steps to get a harder workout. We saw family with dogs hiking the trails too. So its dog friendly! It is about a mile and a half trail,... More

If you are looking for a little activity set in nature with a splash of art then this is worth the visit. Nice hike in the woods with some interesting exhibits. We cam across some staff at the site who were very friendly and helpful. Very good experience and would do it again...

Park is showing its age but is a nice hike and has interesting sculpture. Love the sugar maple forest in which it is set. Nice to have hike choices that can be short or longer.
