The Haliburton Sculpture Forest was created in 2001 by an inspired group of volunteers who had a vision of creating a unique destination in Haliburton that combines art, nature, recreation and education.
With over 40 sculptures and one-of-a-kind benches, and over 15,000 visitors each year, the ongoing success of the Haliburton Sculpture Forest is made possible through the generosity of donors.
