Bobby Valdez Sculpture Garden

We tried to go see the sculpture garden, but the bushes have grown so you can not see it from the street. There is a No Parking sign in front, so you can't really stop and peek in.

Bobby Valdez Sculpture Garden

The Bobby Valdez Sculpture Garden is hidden behind a hedge-covered picket fence so it's hard to see driving by. After a couple of trips around the block we got it pinpointed (the address given on RA is correct) we pulled over curbside.

The pink elephant, Mickey and Minnie Mouse saying hi are easy to spot on the left side of the driveway (once you are on foot). I saw a "For Sale" sign in the 2nd floor window. Didn't know if the property was vacant, so we didn't tread farther. Hope Bobby is okay.
