About Grounds for Sculpture

Grounds for Sculpture is a fantastic 42-acre sculpture park pretty much smack in the middle of New York and Philadelphia. We encourage our guests to go early to check it out, or even to go the day before. Tickets are free the day of the wedding or $18 any other day.

The ceremony will take place in the pavilion at Rat's Restaurant, which is on the grounds and has its own parking lot separate from the main garden. A shuttle will be running from the Marriott starting at 3:00. The last shuttle from the hotel to the venue will leave at 4:30. Rat's Restaurant is approximately 15 minutes from the hotel by car. The shuttle will also be making return trips to the hotel at the end of the night.
