Benson Sculpture Garden

Benson Sculpture Park has been described as “one of the most unique sculpture gardens in the nation”, and that’s an understatement.  This is one attraction you won’t want to miss.  It’s located just outside of Ft. Collins, CO. in the town of Loveland (great name).  With over 130 pieces of sculpture in the park (and more added each year), and the same breathtaking view of the Rocky Mountains, this is a great place to go whether it’s with  your family, a romantic stroll with your partner, or just a place of solitude.  We had a picnic lunch with Mark in a shaded area and walked around the surrounding two ponds.

They are comprised of both traditional and modern sculptures as well as both small and large.  As you can see, some were interactive.  Thank’s Mark, for a beautiful day!
