Amazing landscapes

McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park is a lovely large open space with many interesting sculpture art pieces on display around the vicinity of the gardens.

The park is open Tuesday to Sunday 10am-5pm and offers locals a lovely day out in nature for free. If you wish to visit the gallery, a small donation is appreciated.

I have visited McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park many times and I have always enjoyed myself here because of how serene the place is. You don't get any noise from the freeway or main roads nearby which is great, and with heaps of car spaces, it makes it an easy stress-free day out. It's a great spot to take the kids for something different, take a picnic, football and the camera because there is plenty of opportunities to take some photos.

When visiting, I like to look around at all the cool sculpture pieces. You will find a plaque at each piece which will tell you about the sculpture and who created it.

An interesting sculpture

My favourite piece around the park is the dark tin shed which has fake stars on the roof so when you look up, it's as if you're looking at a night sky. If you do visit this place, I recommend you take a look in there.

Children will enjoy the park because of how much room there is to run wild, plus all the sculptures to see and the cute ducks swimming in the big lake.

When we visited recently, we decided to try out the cafe that is on site. The food was very nice, however, to save on money, I suggest you bring your own snacks or lunch to the park.

The employees at the park are lovely and are happy with any donation you provide them at the main reception. We like to donate at least ten dollars each because we believe the park is a glorious place to visit and we appreciate how much upkeep it would need.

My top five things to do when visiting the McClelland Sculpture Park are:
Take photos of and with the sculptures
Bring a rug and some food for a picnic
Bring a novel or colouring book to relax and do if on my own
Walk around the lake for exercise
Browse through the indoor exhibitions

Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle!

I highly recommend taking a look at the park if you are local to Langwarrin - take the kids during the school holidays or make it your next weekend outing.
