Welcome to the

Carol R. Brown Sculpture Garden

at Hartwood Acres Park

Discover this stunning collection of large-scale artworks, located just 12 miles north of Pittsburgh in the rolling hills of Hartwood Acres Park. Most of these sculptures have been newly conserved to their original grandeur, offering visitors a view of this significant collection with the backdrop of nature and native plantings. The collection is anchored by a 1929 Tudor Revival mansion, a preserved example of an equestrian country estate.

Visitors will observe this grouping of 14 sculptures, most representing the Minimalist movement, from pedestrian- and wheelchair-friendly pathways and trails. The Carol R. Brown Sculpture Garden at Hartwood Acres is our region’s newest landmark destination, offering a valuable opportunity for education, art appreciation and casual strolling in a sustainable landscape setting.
