The Sculpture Park
207 Scotsman Valley Rd
15kms east of Hamilton
Carved into a Waikato hillside, The Sculpture Park at Waitakaruru Arboretum is a former quarry that has been transformed into a magnificent 17.5 hectare garden and arboretum. The rehabilitation started in 1991 to enhance the existing features: rocky outcrops, ponds, flowing water and broad vistas. The park is open by appointment (phone 078240733) and for passholders, concerts, weddings and other events. It is no longer open every day for casual visitors.
On your visit you will discover between 60 to 80 sculptures and installations within New Zealand's biggest outdoor gallery along the 2 km long nature trail. Dramatic changes in light and foliage, wildlife, and vistas guarantee a breathtaking experience.
