Franklin's Sculpture Park one of "Five Hidden-Gem Outdoor Sculpture Parks to Visit on a Quick Trip from Boston"

Boston Magazine's Nathan Tavares writes:

"The town of Franklin manages this petite park, spreading out over just about an acre at the past site of the now filled-in old town pool, where you can now float around the 13 sculptures. Opened in 2014, the park’s gentle walkway curves around a pond, showcasing view of local wildlife and artwork, like the painted PVC pipes of “The Trees of Life” that rise from the water, and Buddy Olson’s giant welded steel bear named “Ursus.” Many of the artworks were created by students from the Franklin Art Center and elsewhere, so bring the kiddos here to spark some creativity."

Free admission. Daily, dawn to dusk. Panther Way, Franklin, MA.

  1. No one manages this place. the "art" is all falling apart. disgraceful. they should have never placed the PVC pipes in the water, it is a hindrance to the ducks, birds, and other WILDLIFE in the pond. totally bad choice. if you want to ADMIRE something, look at the nature!!! the art is nothing compared to real life nature and beauty.
