The Wildflower Sculpture Park sits on a modest stretch of open space in between the South Mountain Reservation Dog Park and the parking lot. I’ve rushed past hardly noticing being pulled by my dog, anxious to run and play in the enclosure. But when I did stop to take a look I found some pretty interesting works made by artists using all sorts of materials, even coat hangers.
The sculpture park was opened in 2012 by the South Mountain Conservancy. It got its name from the nearby Wildflower Preserve. There are a number of permanent works and four new pieces are added each year. South Mountain Reservation is an Essex County, N.J., park.
