Some interesting sculptures. The big problem for us was that we had to hire a car and driver to get there (and Manega Museum) so it was quite expensive.

A short drive from Ouaga with an admission ticket for entry. Some of the sculputres are interesting. Worth about an hour or two at the most. I would think this place is not suited for kids

A quiet and calm stroll among the sculptures. Very interesting. Try it on a cooler day, then grab a coke at the small restaurant. Children will enjoy making sense of the art as you wonder, "how in the world did they ..... "

Was just there this May 2016. The park is full of sculptures made from artists all over the world. Often the art is full of meaning, socially and otherwise. A park guide can offer a lot of detail regarding each piece during a tour. There...More

I'm not sure I would drive all the way out here just to see the sculptures. I would recommend you combine it with a trip to Loumbila or another sight in the area. I spent about 2 hours wandering through the sculpture garden, enjoying the...More

Not sure if I liked it but it is worth a visit. Try to do it without the guide, it does not add to the visit really. A park that boasts of granite sculptures form artists form all over Africa. Worth a visit I think

This is the place to see granite rocks sculptured by talented artists. The large rocks have been sculptured on the site and form an interesting display of modern and traditional carvings.

A very interesting and unique attraction in West Africa. Every two years, artists from around the world are invited to create sculptures in the garden (mostly using the boulders in their natural setting). A guide interprets some of the highlights for you during your visit...More
