The Himalayan Garden & Sculpture Park is an open-air gallery home to more than 80 striking contemporary sculptures, showcased in a tranquil valley setting. The park covers 45 acres of stunningly beautiful woodland, gardens and an arboretum; enhanced by 3 lakes,and a number of features including a Himalayan Shelter, Pagoda, Summerhouse, decorative Bridges and a Contemplation Circle (consisting of five chairs carved from Giant Redwood).
The sculptures have been chosen and positioned within the landscape in a way that relates to everything around them; the weather, light, vegetation and the close and long-distance views. It is an active relationship, with each sculpture focusing, intensifying and animating its environment. The planting and other features of the park and woodland area, are there to enhance the sculptures, including what is widely considered to be the North’s largest collection of rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolias. There are nearly 20,000 plants including some 1,400 rhododendron varieties, 250 azalea varieties and 150 different magnolias.
Six unique sculptures by Subodh Kerkar ( the Founding Director of the Museum of Goa) are among the exciting new attractions for 2019; alongside a Norse Shelter and an exciting project by local Sculptor Anna Whitehouse, who will be our artist in the garden. Anna will be finishing her unique sculptural spheres as you watch, inspired by pollen grains and clay collected from the park.
A Log Cabin Tearoom serves a range of hot and cold drinks, a variety of food options, snacks and delicious cakes and tray bakes. A woodland playground provides entertainment for the children, and a well stocked Nursery allows you the opportunity to take a memento of your day home.
Tickets may be purchased online or upon entry on the day at the Ticket Office. Dogs are welcome if kept on a lead.
We look forward to your visit to our award winning Park.
