Enjoy Dr. Seuss Exhibition through the eyes of your grand-babies. It's like a little bit of the book is coming to life & they can relate to it, so COOL!

A fun place to see Dr. Seuss characters in a bigger than life size. It brought back memory and stories that we read to our children when they were a baby.

This is a very nice area for any Dr. Seuss fan. It is a great way to take pictures with your favorite book characters. Unfortunately, Dr. Seuss' house was not open, as it was closed for rennovations. We will definitely have to make a trip...More

What a charming park, children are free to run, laugh and generally be -KIDS!!! I love the wonderful sculptures and the woven "house' or arbor whic allows playful hide and seek-it is a step back for all of us who love the good Dr-SEUSS!!

Who doesn't love Dr Seuss? Beautiful detailed bronze statues of all his best characters. My favorite: Yertle the Turtle. About 20 turtles stacked in Salamasond!

Hi Kayla-- If you are visiting the Sculpture Garden, our Blake House Cafe is right next to the parking area. There are restaurants in there. Thanks for asking and enjoy your visit!
We will be passing throught the area and would love to stop and see the memorial garden (not the museums). Will we be able to walk out 35-40 lb, friendly dog through the memorial garden with us? TIA!

We were asked to leave with our dog & were told no dogs allowed. They were polite and friendly about it.
Who is the sculptor or designer of the sculpture garden?

there's a great wiki article - I can't post links here - look it up. The monument was designed by Lark Grey Dimond-Cates, the author's stepdaughter and created by Sculptor and Artist Ron Henson.[
