Discover Michigan Legacy Art Park
Where Art, Nature and History Meet
Discover for yourself the stories of Michigan’s cultural and natural history brought to life through art. Our 30-acre wooded preserve offers an art experience and hiking trail that is uniquely “northern Michigan.”
The forty-plus sculptures in our permanent collection, as well as our juried entry gallery exhibit, and poetry stones placed throughout the park connect visitors to our shared cultural and natural history.
Hundreds of area students visit the art park on school field trips every day. Our Looking to Learn resources help teachers integrate the park trip with classroom learning in math, science, and history.
