Mancy Podcast: Gilgal Sculpture Garden

Oct 13, 2021, 5:00 pm

Poet and playwright RJ Walker and psychic Elle Alder will be covering Gilgal Sculpture Garden, one of SLC's strangest and most mysterious outdoor parks.

The episode will release on BuzzSprout 10/13:

Located at 749 East 500 South in Salt Lake City, Gilgal Sculpture Garden was envisioned, designed and created by Thomas Battersby Child, Jr. in the mid-twentieth century.

Tucked in the middle of the block behind houses and businesses, many are still unaware of its existence and enjoy a true sense of discovery when they visit the garden for the first time.

Gilgal Sculpture Garden contains 12 original sculptures and over 70 stones engraved with scriptures, poems, and literary texts. As a whole, Gilgal Sculpture Garden is significant as the only identified “visionary art environment” in Utah.

The public is invited to visit the garden seven days a week. There is no admission charge. Walking tour brochures are available at the garden. Visiting hours: April/September – 8 am to 8 pm October/March – 9 am to 5 pm

This program is made possible with support from Utah Humanities and Mancy.
