[Urbana] Check out the new sculpture at Meadowbrook Park!

Be sure to head out to Meadowbrook Park and the Timpone Family Tree Grove, and check out Suzi’s Garden

The sculpture was fabricated in 2008 and is made of brushed stainless steel.  The botanical theme fits nicely with our collections—both natural and man-made—at Meadowbrook Park.  Bruce Niemi is a returning sculptor to our program.  He is well known around the state and is highly sought after for his unique approach to work that evolves around the human spirit and nature.

To see Suzi’s Garden, and other sculptures, be sure to check out our Arts & Sculpture Tour. It’s a great way find and learn more about art that’s on display in our parks
