On a residential street behind a dilapidated house is a meticulously maintained “garden” (backyard, really, though there are some nice flowers) filled with some pretty far-out sculptures. It’s a bit surreal, and falls into the category of “Outsider” art (meaning self-taught, not made by a...More

This garden is a sculpture garden of twelve different displays. All are very interesting and the stones with the engraved scriptures, hymns, and quotes are inspired to support the sculptures. Admission is free

To appreciate the wonders and uniqueness of Gilgal, one has to visit. Words cannot describe the art that is contained within the small garden. Treat yourself to some strange and wonderful sights and visit Gilgal Gardens.

Was very difficult to find....It's in the middle of neighborhoods, emphasis on hood! It is incredibly small, like the size of a backyard...sculptures were interesting, but would I say take young kids, definitely no! Plus it takes five minutes see entire park....not worth the drive.
