Open during daylight hours
The Sculpture Park surrounds the award-winning Norman-Foster designed Sainsbury Centre building at the UEA campus. Set within the 350 acres of parkland featuring outstanding art, architecture and natural beauty, it is open daily during daylight for all visitors to enjoy.
The Sculpture Park includes important works by notable artists such as Henry Moore, Elisabeth Frink, Lynn Chadwick, Liliane Lijn and Antony Gormley.
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.

Be a Sculpture Star
During lockdown the combination of art, architecture and nature in our 350-acre Sculpture Park became a much-needed space. Whether for relaxation, creativity or exercise, the great outdoors has proven essential for physical and mental wellbeing in this challenging time.
As a direct response to Covid-19 restrictions, the Sainsbury Centre offered support to organisations tackling the needs of vulnerable neighbouring communities. So far, we have helped:
- Teachers and pupils in local schools with a bird themed activity pack, helping them explore art in the natural environment.
- Local care home residents, who were unable to receive family visits, were driven around the Sculpture Park to see and enjoy the artworks.
- Children on a summer holiday programme run by the Henderson Trust, Norwich Food Bank and Cadge Road community, with nature-based creative activities relating to the Sculpture Park.
- A-Level Art and Design students, providing them with resources themed on site-specific sculpture.
- 100 families who enjoyed hands-on art activities in a monthly outdoor family programme.
As lockdown lifts once more, this inspiring environment continues to be an important resource for education, entertainment and wellbeing.
Our challenge is to reach 250,000 people through Sculpture Park projects and to populate the area with exciting new artworks. Through these, we can create stimulating and supportive programmes for local communities.
We have achieved some funding for an extensive new art and the environment project, which will have significant social impact. However, we still need to raise at least £15,000 to enable us to bring new works into the Sculpture Park.
Your generosity enables us to develop exciting opportunities that help local organisations and bring new artworks into this free-to-enter space.
If you are able, please give generously to help us meet our £15,000 target.
“The Sculpture Park helps families to connect with others in a safe and socially distanced way. The use of outdoor and natural spaces is known to improve outcomes for children both physically and mentally.”
