Nice path, clean park, benches to rest and fun photo op with the spoon. We were lucky to find street parking. Pay parking deck and lot near by. Talk the bridge over the highway to see the Basilica.

I love the Walker Sculpture Garden. It is very user friendly. The sculpture is varied and very interesting. The blue rooster (cock) is a great addition.

The sculptures delight the eye and stir the imagination in a wondrous way. You don't have to like them all, but you will surely find some that capture and captivate. Bring the children along.

Lots of interesting sculptures and a beautiful park. Public restrooms and pay to park. Great place to stop and appreciate some artwork.
