I visited on Nov. 1. The gate was closed but unlocked. I knocked on the door but no one answered. I wandered around and took about 50 photos.

The Garden, a shutterbug's delight of sculpture and bric-a-brac, is officially open just one day per month.

There is so much to see that several visits to Sunnyslope may be needed to take it all in. The property is definitely open the first Friday of the month. The owner will welcome you graciously and is proud to share Sunnyslope with those who appreciate it. She plans on keeping it open.

Even if you have to drive by because you can't make it during open hours, you can see plenty from the street. It's not far from the airport and not that hard to find.

Reports say that the new owners of the Sunnyslope Rock Garden property will now open the garden every first Friday of the month for a few hours. It has already started.

Not cool! Can't see very well since its all locked behind a gate.

We revisited Sunnyslope Rock Garden a few years ago, and it was the same situation. Not sure if this should be removed from the maps, but it technically is visible... from an annoying distance.
