The Sydney And Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review

  • An absolute delight to visit - it's almost shocking that it's free. The space is so well tended and taken care of - you could just go here by yourself when you need a quiet moment. There's a great range of works and while not every one will speak to you everyone will find a work that intrigues them and makes them stop and think. This is an undervalued gem of New Orleans.

  • Probably the best sculpture garden in the world. It is free and you can walk right in, just make sure to mindful and considerate of the rules (such as no pets). You can walk up to all the beautiful artwork or even rent a paddle boat from City Park and float right into the sculpture garden. The design is seamless between nature and manmade artistic endeavors.

  • This has got to be one of the most unorthodox and most beautiful sculpture gardens I've ever been to! The art is out of this world and the wonderful garden that surrounds each piece has been so methodically blended in with the art. You can't tell if the art has been blended in to the garden or if the garden has been manipulated to support the art! You have everything from classical sculpting to out of this world, eerie like wonders, that will have your mind racing! Definitely, the kind of art that will make you stop and ponder! This is the kind of Sculpture garden that even if your not an aficionado, it will capture your interest! The Sydney and Walda Best of Sculpture Garden is just one of the many things to do within the MASSIVE Nola City Park! Drop on by, you'll be happy you did!

  • What a collection! The garden is gorgeous and the curators did a wonderful job merging the artistic beauty with the natural

  • Amazing atmosphere and amazing art. Definitely a must if in New Orleans. Lots of cool pieces of art of all kind. Great for the family. You can also rent canoes and paddleboats and go on the water through the gardens.
