What a wonderful park with trails and sculptures just outside the city limits of Haliburton. Many different artists and sculptures

Hidden gem of a park. 40 + sculptures and artistic benches on a walking path throughout the park, which appears to be part of the art school. We’ll worth a couple hr visit. Roughly 1.5 miles of sculpture trails.
There is also snowshoe and cross country ski trails.

Looked for things to do in the area, this came up...Lots of walking, up & down trails on uneven grounds. Beautiful forest, birds chirping and tall trees. Bring bug spray! Lots of neat art sculptures, information booklet available and walking map plus it's free! You can even walk to the water and sit on a dock. It was such a peaceful walk, plenty of neat places to take photos. This took about 1-2 hours to walk and we even saw deer. Enjoyed it.

Stopped here on the way through town, am I ever glad I did. What an interesting and exciting little gem! We took an interesting walk through the woods to review the sculptures, all unique, and a lot of fun to review. This is a must see if you are in the area and like to do different things.

This was my 3rd visit. Had to bring my adult daughter for a wonderful fall walk though the forest showing her my favourite sculptures as we strolled. There are some marvelous works!
I think it would be preferable to have an explanation posted at each site. Sometimes, I found it difficult to follow the brochure.
Entrance is by donation and the paths are well maintained.

Who wouldn’t enjoy an afternoon of “forest bathing”; strolling through woods and appreciating the amazing sculptures strategically placed along the trails? We started with our prepared lunch on a picnic bench at the outset of the trail, after spending some time exploring the Haliburton Highlands Museum buildings on the adjacent property. Try to catch a museum volunteer who can provide many interesting historical facts about life in the Haliburton area. This is a must see if you have the time and the weather is pleasant.

This was our second visit since 12 years ago….more sculpture additions from the eclectic to honouring Sur Sanford Fleming with a larger than life survey transit… a number of displays could use numbered marker identification signage to match them up with the paper map we picked up at the downtown Tourism office….
It was a very enjoyable afternoon stroll thru the woods ending with a mother deer and 2 fawns strolling down the street into the parking lot….
Nature all around!!!👍👍🤫🤫🍁🍁

It takes awhile to find all the sculptures and we missed some last year.
It is certainly worth a 2nd visit since new sculptures are added.

I looked for Kennisis - it is closer to the Art School and not actually in the Forest. It is a steel Horse and Cree Rider and is particularly impressive because of its bright blue colour. In the same area, there is an Anukshuk and the Unity Gate with dry stone construction.
0ne of the newer sculptures is Matriarcy- an obelisk of women’s faces sculpted from polished spring stone.

This is a lovely walk through the woods starting with the salt and pepper granite figure of Pan with his flute leaning against a tree.

Maps are available but there are over 40 sculptures and I found the map difficult to follow.Hiwever, the descriptions are helpful. Worth a return visit. Lots of parking and admission by donation.

This place opened in Fall 2001 and after 20 years still is a site to behold. The 34 remarkable statues, together with 6 one-of-a kind benches are strewn throughout the trails. Artists, contributors, and students from Fleming College have been responsible for these unique pieces. The Haliburton Sculpture Forest say their mission is to bring together art, nature and people of all ages; creating a place for discovery, exploration, creative expression, and contemplation. I think they’ve succeeded
