Safety rules. Adults are responsible for accompanying children and for ensuring no children or sculptures are injured or damaged. Please note that climbing on the sculptures is NOT allowed. As a parent, you must keep an eye on your children and you are financially liable for any damage to the works of art caused by non-compliance. Climbing on gates and fences is also prohibited. Please note that the top part of the fence is electrified.

Accessibility. The exhibition area is not a park with established walkways. Visitors move freely through the grazing landscape along informal trails across meadows and over hills. Sturdy shoes are recommended, and boots when wet. Sections of the area are quite hilly and to reach the highest located works of art, one must be fit and agile. Follow the instructions about safe footpaths. Visitors with limited mobility can access the central part of the area relatively easily, from where one can view many off the work so art.

Picnic. You are welcome to bring your own picnic basket, but don’t sit down close to the sculpture as this can impact the experience of fellow visitors. Remember that it is not allowed to feed the animal.

Dogs. You are welcome to bring any canine companion to the exhibition if they are on a leash. Naturally, you must bring bags to pick up anything left behind. Please don’t dispose of the bags in nature or in our toilets, see below.

Keep the environment clean. Just like any time you are out in nature, you are responsible for disposing of any rubbish. Pilane is an active grazing landscape and there are no rubbish bins in the area or by the reception. What you bring here, please take home and dispose of.

Toilets. Portable toilets are available by the car park and the Farmyard Café. Throwing dog waste bags or other rubbish in the toilets is strictly prohibited.
