Wonderful World of Oz Statues

Apparently, Frank L. Baum had vacationed in Holland, and while in Holland, was inspired about some of the elements he used in his book "Wizard of Oz." In any case, the statues are beautiful, new in 2019. From the statues, you follow a real yellow brick road across the street to a beautiful park to see a 10 ft. living floral/plant representation of the book Wizard of Oz." It really is quite unique!
