The sun peeks through, illuminating a Whidbey old-timer.

Stare into the eyes of a bird while sitting on a bench, and let your mind soar into the skies.

A sculpture by Greg Neal pays tribute to the late Pam Young, a longtime birder and supporter of the park.

It’s the perfect escape during our locked-down times.

Head out to the woods and experience the Price Sculpture Forest, a 16-acre slice of bliss which opens to the public today, Friday, October 23.

Created to preserve a stretch of land in Central Whidbey, it offers visitors a chance to wander through century-old trees, while also experiencing a wide array of sculptures by artists from across the United States.

The forest, which is located at 678 Parker Rd. in Coupeville, is open free to everyone, though visitors are asked not to bring dogs.

There is a self-guided tour which you can access through your phone, and things are open from dawn to dusk seven days a week.

“It has been an amazing six-year journey getting to this point,” Scott Price said. “The most rewarding aspects have been the terrific collaboration with volunteers and sculptors, plus the support and interest from the community.”

Price offered a special thank you to the “monumental efforts of Ken Price, Michael Hauser, and Linda Hauser.”

“These terrific people have directly helped create this new experience for the community.

“The welcome mat is out for you to Wander in Wonder!”
