Pepsico World Headquarters
700 Anderson Hill Road
The Kendall Sculpture Garden is part of the grounds of the Pepsico Headquarters. Usually when you are approaching an attraction, there are signs along the road saying "so-and-so garden" or "whatever cave". There are absolutely no signs on the road and when you get there, you see only a sign saying PEPSICO. We almost went past it and when we did turn in, we found a guard in a booth. We were sure we were in the wrong place. However, the guard just gave us a day pass and told us where to park. The garden is free
There is a well marked path (it's actually a different color) that you follow to see the sculptures which are both near the lake and near the Pepisco building itself. I didn't know exactly what to expect but the garden is on beautifully manicured grounds and the sculptures are by famous artists. When you get there, you can get a map of the grounds which tells you the names of the sculptures and the names of the artists. There is also a small picnic area near the lake. It took us a little over 2 hours to walk around the grounds.
The first sculpture that you see as you walk up the path is the sculpture "Hats Off" by Alexander Calder.
Near "Hats Off" is a large lake stocked with koi. Here is a family watching the fish
Here are some of the sculptures we saw at the Kendall Sculpture Garden.
