Did You Know There’s a Free, 24 Hour Sculpture Park in Marquette?
If you've visited Michigan's U.P., you may not have known about this free sculpture park tucked away in Marquette.
The other day, while scrolling endlessly on Facebook, I came across a post from a woman named Michelle Rogan that included pictures from her recent visit to Lakenenland Sculpture Park.
About the Park
The sculptures were created by a man named Tom Lakenen. For the past 25 years, Tom has created over 100 sculptures using scrap iron. Aside from the sculpture park, Lakenenland also offers:
- A playground for the kids
- A bog walk
- Two fishing ponds
And more. You can see everything the park has to offer here.
I reached out to Michelle Rogan to see if she would be okay with me using her photos and, she is! So, here's a quick peek at a few of the incredible sculptures at Lakenenland Sculpture Park:

According to its website, the park is free to attend and open 24 hours a day. Dogs are welcome, as long as they're kept on a leash. And, snowmobiles are welcome, too, which you might need if you plan on visiting during the winter.
You can find the exact address and more information on Lakenenland's website.
