The engrossing sights at Franconia Sculpture Park can seem endless to first time visitors.

It's called a "Sculpture Park" when "Sculpture Wonderland" would fit just as well.

Arriving at FSP is unlike arriving at any other location.  Visitors are immediately presented with the full scope of what FSP has to present.  The parking lot faces a tower of a dozen stacked boomboxes, a mini-house, and multiple non-sculpture golf carts for individuals unable to walk the humongus park.

A key element to FSP is that it isn't limited to sculptures that can only be appreciated by eyesight.  At the park there are numerous pieces that allow interaction.  Some of the pieces can be explored, such as the scrap metal playground pictured above, as mini-houses, and other intricate structures.

If you're looking for an adventure that can last an entire day, be sure to visit Franconia Sculpture Park.
