The Hartman Rock Garden is literally someone's backyard, so don't be surprised for the GPS to be taking you through neighborhood streets. It is amazing to see. The kids and I really enjoyed it.

The park has been preserved beautifully. The attention to detail makes Hartman Rock Garden a one of a kind place. On July 11, 2015 they will have all of the miniatures out. Be sure to ask for a guide if there is someone there, or print one online. Each statue has a story.
