AAA Editor Notes
Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is across from the Walker Art Center at 726 Vineland Pl. This 19-acre urban garden displays more than 55 sculptures, including the whimsical “Spoonbridge and Cherry.” The Cowles Conservatory contains palm and orange trees and a sculpture pond with glass sculptures. The 375-foot-long Irene Hixon Whitney Footbridge spans 16 lanes of traffic to connect the garden with Loring Park and downtown.
Note: The conservatory and sculpture garden are scheduled to reopen in June 2017; phone ahead for reopening details.
