Stuart and Barbara Padnos Rooftop Sculpture Garden

Stuart and Barbara Padnos Rooftop Sculpture Garden

Unlike any other garden or rooftop in West Michigan

This completely new garden experience results from the blending of horticulture and sculpture and includes four long-term sculpture loans from the Smithsonian’s Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. Plantings have been designed to provide four seasons of interest. This stunning garden boasts a clean, modern design that highlights vistas to the wetlands and boardwalk.
