I wouldn't drive a long distance out of the way to see these, but since we were in the area to visit Anzo-Borrego Desert State Park, we put these our itinerary. Most of the sculptures are just sitting out in the desert in a remote area outside Borrego Springs. Many are very large and easy to spot. Our favorite was the giant dragon/serpent that crosses under the road. This would be a good activity if it's very hot or someone in your group has mobility issues, because you can drive right up to a lot of them in your air-conditioned vehicle. Children will especially enjoy these. Free admission! There is a map of the sculpture locations here: http://www.galletameadows.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=52&Itemid=93
What a fantastic treasure in the desert. Ricardo's work is amazing. Make sure you get a map to see all of the hundred plus sculptures. Love the Jeep.
A good flat bike ride from the town on quiet roads brings you to an area dotted with sculptures. Most unusual.
The sculptures are phenomenal. The C of C booklet has a map showing the various locations. Our favorite by far was the serpent.... The eagle is excellent as well. Kids will love the T-Rex....
We loved driving around and taking pictures of the amazing sculptures of artist Ricardo Breceda in Borrego Springs. You can pick up a map in Borrego Springs and drive around to the sculptures. You can actually drive right up to the sculptures and pose and touch them it is truly art for the people, such a gorgeous, fun, gift to a traveler. The sculptures include an elephant, dinosaurs, tortoises, a horse and a miner and more... check out there website for details. http://www.abdnha.org/borrego-springs-sculptures-of-ricardo-breceda.htm
The Breceda Sculptures in Galleta Meadows is definitely an attraction that you'll want to see whether staying in, or passing through, Borrega Springs. There are approximately 140 metal sculptures scattered in the desert, mostly along Borrego Springs Road, both above and below Palm Canyon Drive. If you go to the Galleta Meadows website, and click on Maps, there's a map that shows you where many of the sculptures can be found. From horses, to elephants, to sea serpents, to prehistoric beasts, they're all there. Definitely worth a visit.
Driving along in Borrego Springs and looking for the metal statues of prehistoric animals, giraffes, camels, serpents, dinosaurs, horses, rams, was fun and entertaining. I hope they continue to add more statue featured and maybe a walking trail. These were really awesome creations.
If you're in Anza Borrego park, male sure you see at lest one of these sculptures. They are truly amazing works of art out in the middle if pretty much nowhere. Most of them are off the road a bit, but no problem getting there, don't need a 4x4. Even if it's a quick stop, do it!
The sculptures are spread out, we drove to each sculpture and found them intriguing. They had a lot of detail and many are animals or items you would expect to find in the desert. The animals are life like and captured in motion. The dinosaurs are large and look like would have been roaming the area during the dinosaur age. My favorite dinosaur appeared to travel under the road and come up on the other side! It's a great place for some photo ops and a way to explore the desert.
Last year we found a few of these great sculptures. This year we found a lot more. Perhaps not all, but most.The detail in these sculptures is incredible, as is the artist's imagination for some if not all, of these magical creatures.A little hard to find, but visit the website for a map: http://www.galletameadows.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=52&Itemid=93
