Queen Califia’s Magical Circle is a hidden treasure in Kit Carson Park in Escondido. It is the only American sculpture garden and the last major international project created by French artist Niki de Saint Phalle. 

It is inspired by California’s mythic, historic, and cultural roots. The garden is home to nine large scale sculptures, a circular “snake wall” and a maze entryway.
