Lakenenland Sculptures; A Walk of Art

Lakenenland Sculpture Park is the coolest place. We’ve driven past it the last four years while in the U.P. Each time we said we wanted to stop, but didn’t. This time we did and it sure was a wonderful surprise.

Mr. Skeleton was the park’s greeter.

He looks hungry!

There’s also an area for kids to play.

Now presenting… The Lakenenland dancers and actors!

This is a great place for adults and kids.

They also have a wonderful pavilion, but lets get back to the art!

I think I’m titling this one “Crazies in a Cage.”

They had this one honoring essential workers. They also had one honoring marines and another honoring firemen. I’m just so impressed with this place.

Even my buddy Clifford was there.

Peaches doesn’t look so sweet. What do you think?

Wow! Is this crazy or what? Love it!

This is a great place for the whole family to come. Even the furry members are welcome. You can drive through and look at the sculptures, but if you’re able – I recommend walking through it so you can read what’s on them and absorb the artwork. They also have a walking trail through some woods and you walk on boards part of the way. They have writing on them and you look for the bear cub, etc. hiding in the woods. It’s fun.

Impressive. There’s a lot more that I haven’t posted. It was difficult picking just a few. I loved them all.

Lakenenland Sculpture Park is in Michigan, east of Marquette on Highway 28. Don’t pass it by. You need to check it out!

    1. It’s great and Lake Superior is on the north side of that road with beautiful parks and scenic turn-outs near-by. As long as I’m able, I’ll never stop exploring. I still have a few more posts to do about my trip. Hopefully I’ll find time in the week to come. Take care!


  1. Thanks for the tip! It looks like a great place!! We do visit Michigan every year, but not the UP. Sometime we do plan to explore more, so I will put it on my bucket list. Enjoy your day!


    1. It was fantastic. Someone said the guy that started that park is or was a welding teacher at Northern Michigan University and by what’s written on some of them, I think his classes did some of them. This is just my guess-work, but there are definitely some talented people in this world. It’s worth seeing and it’s near Lake Superior. Bonus!

  2. I love the art. I don’t know why they call it junk yard art though. I think a lot of the art was really nice. Impressive and fun. I would have loved visiting this place. I too, love all the dogs. It sure looked cold there. That was a cool raft and a neat way to view fish. Looked like a fun day. Sending lots of love and hugs. 🤗💕❤️Joni


  3. I’m assuming they named it that because they took scraps of metal, etc. (junk basically) and made it into a phenomenal work of art. All of it was impressive. Thanks for the love and hugs – you can never get too much of those. Love and hugs to you too!!!
