The Bee Cave Sculpture Park opened its first phase with a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday. It was the perfect way to introduce a beautiful new park to the community.
This park is truly a hidden gem, tucked behind the Police Department near the Galleria shops. The large, 7-acre natural area with enormous oak tress and a pond somehow seems a world away. Wandering through the paths admiring the sculptures you’d never know there’s a shopping center just a stones throw away. It’s a mini escape – a convenient place for residents and visitors of Bee Cave to enjoy nature and art in one beautiful setting.
The Bee Cave Arts Foundation worked for years to bring this vision to life, and as I heard several times on Saturday, “this is only the beginning.” The Sculpture Park currently includes 11 sculptures, some permanent and some rotating, with plans already in the works for Phase II. A playground designed by artist GiGi Miller, whose colorful “Leap of Faith” frog sculpture is a hit with the kids, will be visually appealing with vibrant colors and whimsical touches.
