Come walk through the forest trail, following the sounds of music and viewing artwork. Sink yourself into the calm and drink in that sounds that surround us, both nature and man-made.

Parking at the elementary school, Storybook Gardens, or the Headwaters Museum is available to access the trails.

Sound Garden Workshops

Free outdoor art workshops will be open to the community the week of June 13th.  Workshops will take place near the Land O’ Lakes Community Park Pavilion and Walking Trail (located behind the Northern Waters Museum) and are geared for all ages. (Please note ages 7 - 10 need to be accompanied by an adult.) They will be led by Composer JG Everest from the Twin Cities with help from local naturalists and artists. All workshops will tie into a free, interactive outdoor exhibit called the LOLA Sound Garden, which will be open to the public on June 18, 20, and 21. This exhibit will be located in the same place as the workshops and will include artwork from the workshops and artwork from the students in Watersmeet schools, SOAR MS Charter School, and LOLA Homeschool students.
