Even though we were visiting in early April after a rough winter, and few plants or shrubs were blooming, the place was still a beautiful, welcoming stroll over well-tended paths. We took advantage of several of the scattered benches, to take in the different vistas,...More

Beautiful woodland garden tucked in a neighborhood in Devon. Even though our visit was in the fall and not at the peak of the blooming season (spring seems to be best with rhododendrons, azaleas and wild flower) the setting is well thought out and allows...More

In season the rhododendrons and azaleas are gorgeous as are the plantings surrounding a large pond. Most plants and trees are clearly labeled. It has a very nice visitor center with well-maintained restrooms. They sell nice plants but they are pricey. The grounds are hilly...More

A walk down on the paved paths to the pond is quite rewarding. There seems to be something always in bloom in this woodland setting. We are looking forward to the spring when the rhododendrons and azaleas will be in bloom. We will be back.
