A Day Trip to Rockford, IL: July 17, 2012
In fact, the only thing I wanted to see in Rockford, was the Public Art along the Rock River Rec Path. It's a small stretch of land between the Rock River and N 2nd Street. It includes the Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens, and just across the N 2nd Street, the Sinnissippi Park. I was aware of only a few sculptures along this path, but could see a lot more. In fact, Rockford Park District is developing this area as a major attraction with Bike Path, Public Art and Conservatory.. A very short, two-hours trip, and I loved it! here are some sculptures I saw..
