Galleta Meadows Metal Sculptures

In the small town of Borrego Springs, the gateway to the Anza Borrego Desert State Park, you can find these wonderful metal sculptures created by Ricardo Breceda, also known as “Galleta Meadows Sky Art”.

In the Visitor Center and almost every shop or restaurant or hotel in town you get a free brochure with the locations of the sculptures. These can be found quite easily on Borrego Springs Road on both sides.

Most of the sculptures are right next to the road, for others you have to walk a few feet or even drive a sandy road.
The over 130 sculptures were created by Southern California artist Ricardo Breceda via commission from Dennis Avery.

Dennis Avery, now deceased, was the owner of Galleta Meadows Estates.

The metal sculptures have different themes. Most of them are prehistoric animals, including dinosaurs. You although find scorpions, big horn sheep, elephants, giraffes and the main attraction is a 350-foot-long dragon.
Beside the animal there are cars, a priest with a cross, a horse buggy and many more sculptures.

Galleta Meadows is not fenced and is open to the public for visitation, including hiking, horseback riding, picnicking, photography, and bicycling every day of the year.

There is no fee.
