This sixty hectare cultural park is dedicated to the Hindu God Vishnu and his mount, the Garuda. As of time of writing, construction on the gigantic statue monument of Vishnu is ongoing, with the upper body and hands completed, and also the Garuda’s head. It is being sculpted by Nyoman Nuarta, a Balinese artist. See the fountain next to it, which is called the Parahyangan Somaka Giri; it is said to have healing powers.
Today the park is one of the most popular venues in the city for public events - exhibitions, fairs, festivals, conferences, concerts and performances. To this end it has an amphitheatre, an art gallery, a souvenir shop, 260 meters above the sea level, the park has an unparalleled view of the city and the ocean. The view is especially nice from the Indralok Garden. The Kecak dance is performed in the GWK amphitheatre every evening at 6:30pm. A parade goes around the park every day at 5pm.
The park is a great place for a stroll. The limestone walls and their carvings give is a sense a gravitas and history. There are also two restaurants inside the complex.

Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park, Bali Reviews - Write a Review
5000 for motor bike parking. 100,000 for foreigner to see statutes. Free cultural performances in several places throughout the day. The best part: coconut "ice cream" stall on the way up to the statues. Fresh fruit; almost all dairy free; 5000 for a small cup. So good we even came back for it on another day!
There have a large area in natural environment. Recommended place for those who loves culture and heritage, not only Plaza Wisnu and Plaza Garuda , but there is also performance of traditional dancing in amphitheater (included in entrance fee). There is also GWK loop to bring visitors see the project of Garuda Wisnu Kencana building.
The area is huge. I was there in 2012, when the ticket was still Rp. 30,000 per person and I could even bring my dog inside. After 5 years, the 2 main statues are still on the ground and they are still under construction. Although they have done some changes, but those are not the main things they should focus on. The focus is those 2 statues. I was there earlier this year with my family and there really isn't anything interesting but taking pictures.
Still under construction. Kecak dance is okay.. Not a must see. Souvenir shop is good. Has few good option. The garuda statue is imposing
