A short walk around The Grounds for Sculpture

The Grounds for Sculpture is a 42-acre contemporary sculpture park in Hamilton Township, N.J. It was founded by New Jersey sculptor Seward Johnson whose works I will feature in a later post. Opened in 2000, the park is adorned with beautiful grounds that could make it a botanical garden if it wasn’t for all the sculpture. There is also an outstanding restaurant on the premises with the unfortunate name of Rat’s.

  3. Fabulous sculptures and gardens, Ken. I lived in NYC for many years, and was unaware of this park ’til now.
