Paradise Garden, located at 200 North Lewis Street, is open to the public. It encompasses two and half acres densely filled with buildings, constructions, sculptures, and thousands of objects. Finster's former studio, a yellow, plank-sided bungalow, is now a visitors' center. From it, a path leads to a multi-layered, multi-sided building, the World Folk Art Chapel.

  • Very creative artist . Lots of sculpture made with concrete and pieces of found materials. Also nice foliage and flowers to enjoy. Wear comfortable shoes.

  • It's been several years since I was in Paradise Garden. Much work has been done and the garden was great even in the rain! Very friendly and helpful staff. A must see experience.
  • Really enjoyed FinsterFest. Will definitely be back. Update: We came back and stayed at one of the houses - the garden is even better at night!
