This is a fun place to visit, only takes about 20-30 minutes. A man has been building art out of junk in his backyard for 40 years. His pieces are unique and fun to see.

This was such a welcome surprise. We drove down the road and parked the car. Then we just wandered about. There were so many wonderful, imaginative metal sculptures. We loved it.

If you like outdoor art this is the place! Many sculptures to see, a bit quirky but worth the 5 minute drive from town. Lots trails with art, wear walking shoes!
