Sculptures are made out of scrap iron, old car parts, old machinery parts. You have to see it. I can't do it justice by my description. Oh, the best part is it's free. It's not marked very well though. Passed by it and had to turn around. It's a must see.

Really wanted to see this, but once we entered, we noticed that you need a 4X4 to go through this. You should know this. Wish we would have known before we got there. We really would have liked to have seen it.

Free! Donations accepted but not expected. Walk or drive slowly to tour. We walked it in about 30 minutes. Owner is a little political. ..but we didn't mind. Creative sculptures. Picnic areas. Playground. Portable potty. You gotta see the "heavy metal concert ". Unique, easy, quick stop on 28. Enjoyed it immensely.

We didn't expect much from this place, but it turned out so much better than we thought. It was a lot of fun to drive through and look at different funky sculptures. Some of them are quite abstract so you can let your imagination play wild. We had a 7 week baby in the car, so it was a perfect... More

Obviously a passion for this sculptor. It was a bit of a history lesson as well. What talent and what a sense of humor too.

Mr. Lakenenland is an artist and genius. The drive is free (donations accepted) and displays over 80 meticulously crafted sculptures. The attention to detail is amazing. My 8 year old son took a picture of every single sculpture. We walked instead of drove the path which was perfect because we got to appreciate each sculpture from a closer vantage point.... More

Had a blast just cruising through this fun and funky sculpture park. It's a free ride through with donations accepted. My favorite was the giant mosquito!

I was excited to check this place out after reading the reviews. I was very underwhelmed though. It's scrap metal turned into pained sculptures. Not much to do other then drive or walk around and look. It's free though, and may be entertaining to those that enjoy art.

It was nice to see all the different sculptures and to be able to drive through the whole park without getting out of the car. It is hard for my boyfriend to walk, so being able to see it from the car was awesome!
