Visitor Tips and News About World's Largest Easel
During our very long road trip from Denton, Texas to Seattle, Washington, my family stopped here for a much needed break. We loved the easel! We found the park very nice and very clean. There was plenty of room to run and play. My daughter (age 7) and four-legged baby (age 4) loved it! Great stop![ND, 07/31/2011]

It's big and quite impressive, even if it isn't the World's Largest! The project's goal is to reproduce all seven of Vincent van Gogh's sunflower paintings on giant easels in seven different countries around the globe. This easel and painting is currently 1 of only 3 that are completed. When completed, the project is expected to be in the Guinness Book of World Records.[Patty Acevedo, 08/04/2009]
