BNG Sculpture Park

Public Art Project

Make the most of the fall weather to explore the Par-La-Ville Sculpture Park, a joint project between the Corporation of Hamilton and the Bermuda National Gallery situated in the Queen Elizabeth Park in the centre of Hamilton. 

The majority of sculptures on display are part of The Young Collection which was gifted to the BNG by the former owners of the Lantana Cottage Colony in Somerset. The artworks formed part of the “museum without walls” which they made so popular with visitors to their property.

It was their wish that the sculptures in the collection be displayed publicly in the City of Hamilton so that they may be shared and enjoyed by future generations of Bermudians and visitors as they were at Lantana. The sculptures, along with existing pieces in the BNG’s collection also on display in the park, form part of Bermuda’s National Sculpture Collection
