To appreciate the wonders and uniqueness of Gilgal, one has to visit. Words cannot describe the art that is contained within the small garden. Treat yourself to some strange and wonderful sights and visit Gilgal Gardens.

This is not a huge place (it was once the sculptors back yard), but it IS interesting. As a testament to one man's passion to document something (I'm not sure what) it is quite entertaining. I understand that while it IS aimed to be positive to the Mormon faith, the church has chosen not to support this as some of... More

We didn't know what to expect from this visit. The garden is small and not easy to find - set up you GPS and find the parking somewhere on the street. The garden is just BEHIND just a regular old house. It is free to visit but check website for the open hours. Read about the author to understand better... More

This is a lovely little garden with some historical importance to the city. It is well maintained, and occasionally you get to smell fresh baking bread from the nearby bakery.

This is a little Salt Lake City secret. If you get the chance to visit Salt Lake City and have a little time - 20 minutes to see and enjoy the grounds and the rock sculptures, it's worth it and by the way it is free.

One man's very personal interpretation of religious experience. Unique sculptures and a beautiful garden setting.

Was very difficult to find....It's in the middle of neighborhoods, emphasis on hood! It is incredibly small, like the size of a backyard...sculptures were interesting, but would I say take young kids, definitely no! Plus it takes five minutes see entire park....not worth the drive.

This is otherworldly! I sometimes still have to pinch myself that a Mormon bishop was creating art like this in the 1950s and before. This is really unique. I give this 5 stars because it's unique and beautifully curated. Sometimes the pamphlet box at the garden is empty, so do a little homework online before you arrive. Give yourself plenty... More

When I was a kid, my dad discovered this place when we were going to Chuck-A-Rama. It was not a park at the time but a private residence. He walked up and ask the owner if he see it. It is a amazing place. Since then I have brought my kids to share in the in experience. I would recommend... More
