When you drive through Marquette to Munising Michigan, you have to stop and drive (or walk) through Lakenenland Sculpture Park. It is worth the stop.
Located 5 miles east of Marquette, Michigan along highway M-28. It is across from Shot Point Road. If you are snowmobiling through, you will find it along the snowmobile trail #417.
This park was created by Marquette Native, Tom Lakenen. There are over 80 amazing sculptures to come enjoy. Plan to stop and spend 30+ minutes on this stop.
Can you imagine how long it takes to make, sculpt and bring one of these sculptures to life? A lot of time goes into building them. Then there is the material, the welding material and then paint to add the colors that really bring the pieces to life.
About Lakenenland Sculpture Park
There is no fee, to come visit or see the sculptures, but you can make donations. Lakenenland is solely funded by Tom and his family.
We arrived in the morning on our way to Pictured Rock. We opted to drive through the park and took turns taking pictures of all the sculptures. The park is set up for you to drive through and sculptures are on both sides of the car. There were people walking through as well.
Just when you think you’ve seen it all around the corner there is more! With over 80 different sculptures, you’ll need to stop by and see the rest for yourself.
