About the Park
“The park is magic!” –Chet Ellingson, Rosemount
Located on 60-acres of rolling wooded hills in Eagan, Minnesota, Caponi Art Park and Learning Center is a distinctive community space offering free cultural and educational experiences in an inviting, natural setting. The Art Park is unique in the way it blends the beauty of nature with art to create a symphony out of all the physical elements and creative activities that take place in the park.
Caponi Art Park provides opportunities for reflective experiences as well as active participation in a variety of programs. The Art Park welcomes over 18,000 visitors each year. Visitors enjoy a quiet and peaceful atmosphere as they walk the trails and take in the art. The Art Park’s most prominent features include miles of wooded walking trails, a one-of-a-kind Sculpture Garden and the Theater in the Woods outdoor amphitheater.
A 60-acre sculpture in itself, the Art Park serves as a backdrop to cultural programs and educational offerings. Programs include the Summer Performance Series, Family Fun Tuesdays, Shakespeare Festival, Medieval Fair, Poets in the Park and Guided Tours.
Caponi Art Park inspires exploration & discovery in all ages!
The mission of Caponi Art Park and Learning Center is to make art accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds by providing a cultural and educational center where people come together with art and nature to restore, nurture and maintain the basic unity of the human spirit.
