The afternoon of our visit, Bodo and I had the park mostly to ourselves. It was quite cold, but we had dressed for the weather so it was a pleasant experience. I can imagine a spring or summer visit that might include a stop at the cafe would be even more enjoyable. If you have plans to be near Dusseldorf, a side trip to Wuppertal and the Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden is worth your while.

|Marvelous heated glass cube gallery for exhibiting sculptures indoors.|
|Inside the glass cube, Cragg works in foreground and in back. I believe the red one is wood|
and stainless in rear.
|Additional Cragg works in the glass gallery. Various materials include bronze, stone, steel,|
stainless steel, and jesmonite seen in this foreground work.
|This view gives a good example of the forest in relation to the works.|
|Some works are installed on concrete pads while others are based in-ground with|
gravel and bark for a more integrated system.
|Many of Cragg's forms echo similar molten layering but there are strong contrasts in materials|
and surfaces. I was told that Cragg has maintenance to clean the sculptures every day which
is evident in this brilliant stainless work.
|This is a striking work that shows the integration with nature and the gravel walking paths.|
