A former commercial trout breeding and fishing farm has been transformed with the assistance of landscape designer Patrick Watson and landscape contractor Wesley de Wit into a unique platform for the exhibition of outdoor sculptures and installations.
Existing buildings have been renovated and new pavilions have been built with the assistance of architect Johan Bergentuin.
The sculpture park provides a unique platform for artists to realize and exhibit outdoor sculpture and installations; and for collectors and the public to enjoy these in nature. Exhibitions may be selling or non-selling, depending on the circumstances.
