Ann and Monroe Carell Jr. Family Sculpture Trail

The sculpture trail was established in 1999 at Cheekwood Estate and Gardens through a donation from Ann and Monroe Carrel Jr. The trail underwent renovation to upgrade the pathways and add to the plant collection. Reopening in 2020, the trail features 10 works on a 1.5 mile woodland walkway. The plant palette is 100% native with very few cultivars. More than 700 trees and shrubs were added during the renovation, with the continued goal to have as much plant diversity as possible.
