queen califia's magical circle kit carson park escondido

Kids of ALL ages love this park… bring your family, friends, imaginations and cameras! Docents will be on hand for questions.

The “snake wall” opens into a maze whose walls and floors are covered with black, white, and mirrored tiles. Once through the maze, visitors enter into the central courtyard. There are nine freestanding sculptures in the garden. The imposing mosaic sculpture of Queen Califia standing on the back of a five-legged eagle commands the center of the garden.

Queen Califia’s Magical Circle is the only American sculpture garden and the last major international project created by French artist Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002).

Inspired by California’s mythic, historic, and cultural roots, the garden consists of nine large-scale sculptures, a circular “snake wall” and maze entryway, sculpturally integrated bench seating and native shrubs and trees planted within the interior plaza and along the outer perimeter. The garden bears the brilliant, unique mosaic ornamentation that is an unmistakable part of de Saint Phalle’s later work.

Open Days/Hours:
The garden is open to the public, weather permitting*, with free entrance, on:
– Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00am to Noon
– 2nd and 4th Saturdays from 9:00am to 2:00pm

Kit Carson Park – click through for a map of the park
(In the Iris Sankey Arboretum)
3333 Bear Valley Parkway, Escondido, CA 92025 760-839-4000

*Weather Permitting: After recent rain or heavy fog, there is chance that the sculpture garden will be closed, due to safety issues, usually 24-48 hours after a rain event, while it dries.
