Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Established in 1950, it's the largest park of its kind in New England. Providing a constantly changing landscape of large-scale, outdoor, modern, and contemporary sculpture and installations, the Sculpture Park offers a truly one-of-a-kind backdrop for your celebration.
  • Ceremonies are beautiful on the Sculpture Terrace, which overlooks Flint’s Pont, followed by lovely cocktail receptions in our museum building
  • Dine and dance beneath the breezy sailcloth tent on the Pondside Terrace, or head inside to the stylish Dewey Family Hall, which boasts engaging works from emerging local artists throughout.
