French Countryside . . . in New Jersey

Nov 17, 2021

Strolling through the grounds of Grounds For Sculpture on a chilly and rainy Sunday was a pretty good start to the fall season this year. Early last month I joined my extended family at Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey to celebrate a birthday.

It was my second time there; I first visited the grounds about five years ago in the dead heat of summer, so this time around I was able to appreciate the eeriness the site has to offer. Grounds For Sculpture  Grounds For Sculpture is both a museum and sculpture garden with nearly 300 contemporary pieces. Grounds for Sculpture  It was founded by Seward Johnson (whose work you can see nicely displayed across the 42 acres), Grounds For Sculpture  and it first opened in 1992. As a not-for-profit public organization, the admission fee visitors pay, along with donations, help support Grounds For Sculpture programs and initiatives.

We enjoyed a leisurely amble through the grounds until we came across a tour guide; Grounds For Sculpture we started chatting about hosting an event there and, luckily for us, he started to walk with us and shared fun facts about some of the sculptures. This was a nice way to wrap up the stroll before heading in to Rat’s for dinner — a cute French countryside café-inspired restaurant located on the grounds. Grounds for Sculpture

The food was as delicious as I remembered it to be, and the service (although slow) was great. We lucked out and caught a bride and groom taking wedding pictures in the next room. The outdoor café overlooks the sculpture gardens, which elevates the dining experience. I must say, although hot, I think I prefer visiting the grounds when it’s warmer outside, so I’m looking forward to bringing my family there next spring.
