Visiting The Fields
The Fields Sculpture Park is open year round to the public during daylight hours. If seeking to experience all of the works in The Fields, one will traverse grassy fields, forested paths, hills, and footbridges. There are no paved walking paths, and occasionally the trails become muddy and sometimes even impassable. Therefore, we recommend that visitors come prepared with sturdy footwear and weather-appropriate attire to best enjoy their experience.
In the winter, groomed cross country ski trails are free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy picnic facilities located throughout the park. Guided tours are available to groups of six or more with a reservation. The Fields offers educational workshops and tours for school groups and other organizations as well as free public programs throughout the year.
The Benenson Center is open daily year-round except Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas, and New Year's Day. Restrooms are located inside the Benenson Center, as well as a café serving snacks and beverages on the weekdays, and light lunch fare on the weekends. The Benenson Center is also home to a gallery and lobby exhibition space, as well as a small library for visitors to enjoy.
