Various paved and unpaved trails that loop around and through art and nature exhibits. The Southern paved portion is the Reedy Creek Trail which connects to the House Creek Greenway Trail and is known as the scenic walking bridge that spans I-440 at Wade Avenue. Trails range from an easy 1-mile paved loop to a hilly 2-mile out-and-back (see map link for details). Bikes are only allowed on the paved trails. Construction is underway for the Blue Loop Trail; scheduled to open in the Spring of 2013.

With sculpture scattered throughout, it is a moderate short walk with access to the greenway. Beautiful any time of year!

This is one of my favorite places to go in the area. The trails and art over the landscape are wonderful.

You can combine it with a visit to the museum, or just enjoy being out in the recently expanded series of picturesque trails. The outdoor art adds a unique aspect to the wonderful area. The trails also connect to the expansive greenway system.

Great for walking, running or biking. Lots of different path options including paved, gravel and through the woods. Quite a few sculptures to see along the way as well. New paths opening up with the park expansion wrapping up. Many of the paths do not have a lot of shade is the only drawback I can think of.
