The Sculpture Park is situated across the University campus, with 350 acres of attractive parkland open to everyone to enjoy art, architecture and the natural environment. As well as formal sculpture gardens, the Park offers the tranquillity of the Broad and Yare river valley and dense urban modernist architecture, designed by leading architects such as Norman Foster, Denys Lasdun and Rick Mather. The natural environment includes a wide range of fauna and flora including a number of remarkable ancient oaks and is home to a population of wild rabbits and rare and endangered species. The Sculpture Park includes important works by Henry Moore, Elisabeth Frink, Lynn Chadwick, Liliane Lijn and Antony Gormley.
