During the school holidays, McClelland Sculpture Park will be open Wednesday to Sunday, 10:00am to 4:00pm, and the Café is open for Takeaway, Saturday and Sunday, 10:00am to 3:00pm.
During this period of lockdown, Park entry is free for locals (in a radius of 5km at time of writing but please check current public health advice before visiting), but the toilets won’t be accessible, nor are picnics possible, and the gates close daily at 4:00pm sharp.
Please act responsibly, respect our parkland and be inspired by the sculpture collection in this beautiful bushland setting.
