The Polasek is a liv­ing museum, with out­door gar­dens dat­ing to 1949. The three-acre gar­den is a pas­toral oasis within the City of Win­ter Park. It is also a his­toric land­scape on Lake Osce­ola with many of the plant­i­ngs orig­i­nally placed by Mr. Polasek and his fam­ily.  It pro­vides a col­or­ful back­drop for fifty out­door sculp­tures includ­ing free­stand­ing and archi­tec­tural sculp­tures by Albin Polasek, as well as works by other 20th cen­tury sculptors.
