Amazing sculptures done in granite stone that is still set in the ground. Artists come from a variety of West African countries, also North Africa, and Europe. Most interesting when you have a guide accompanying you to provide background information on each of the artists...More

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 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 ..... "

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
