Griffis Sculpture Park

The park rules appear to have been relaxed, as they are painted over. Good for us as our dog loved a roll in the lovely field of grass. There are three trail options. Honor system on the encouraged entry fee.

Griffis Sculpture Park

Griffis Sculpture Park is one of the most interesting picnic locations in the Northeast. Offering everything from sculptured dinosaurs to sculptured water sprites, the 400 acres of walking trails, flowering trees, and artworks offer something for every age and taste. Best of all, the last time I visited (about 5 years ago), the park still required no admission fee.

August 2007: Tipster Dan reports: "It is still there. A bit out of the way, but very worth visiting. Okay to picnic, but no pets, alcohol, radios, or smoking."
