There is a great trail system here and beautiful woods to hike through. There is no art or just some stones on the parking lot side of the art grounds. You actually have to go under the road to get to the sculpture park. There are nude sculptures so it's pretty rude and awkward. Otherwise beautiful place.

Caponi Art Park is a nice place to walk around and see art! It's like an outdoor art museum. I don't believe it's open in winter, but you can check.

some very good outdoor sculptures if you're in the area its worth the 45 minutes it will take to tour. best bet is to check and see if they have any theater or demonstration events going on.

Music and entertainment in the forest. The art work from the artist Anthony Caponi are very educational. It's an inspiration and enjoyable.

This park is located in a residential and hilly area of Eagan. This is a walking park that has outdoor art and a small building next to the parking lot. Best to visit here when the weather is warm and dry.

Hidden gem of an art park in Eagan built by an artist who loved the natural wonders of the land. A bit convoluted to park and enter through a tunnel under the road, but worth the walk and time spent exploring.

One of my favorite places to visit and walk in Eagan.. Caponi Art Park is a hidden gem right on Diffley ave!! I don't know if everyone knows about the tunnel to the art and sculptures, or the performances you can attend in the summer/fall, but Caponi Art park is truly a treasure!!

Flew into Minneapolis and was really put off by the feel of the city. Caponi park was my light in the storm. Just an amazing place. I could have stayed all day!

Nice place to walk but would not go out of my way to go to see sculptures. Most are old and need refurbishing. Concert area is nice.
