Though this is a small walking area park, it allows one to step away from the busy highway and appreciate some quiet time. There are a variety of statues based on Biblical themes. A small parking area and a shaded picnic table provide adequate room...More

This park is a unique sculpture garden with a valley view beyond amazing. Our afternoon walk through the artist’s sculptures was inspiring. You can’t help but feel amazed and full of tranquility. A must see!!

People travel to Rio to see the statute of the Christ while an American mid-century sculpture garden exists right here in California! Desert Christ Park, a quiet place for a picnic, a hike, a beautiful view with statutes depicting Christ's life.

be sure to see the Rock Chapel. Some good souls have done a great job restoring/preserving the statues, and the landscaping is looking good too

This park was easier to find than we had anticipated. There was no one around when we visited. It was peaceful, and although a few of the sculptures are showing a little wear (hopefully not vandalism) they are well done. We found the park on...More

One of our party wanted to visit this place. It was outstanding and very impressive although a bit spooky. If you look at it as art and inspiration from one person's perspective rather than a religious aspect, you might appreciate its form. We were so...More
