The gardens are the beautiful result of careful planning and attentive tending. The perennial beds bloom throughout the season. The annual beds change completely going from spring to summer to fall.

Located near the river. Nice little garden. You can spend there 30 minutes at the most. Recommend visit it while walking along the river

Don't miss this a-little-out-of-the-way garden beside the County Courthouse down by the river at the end of Church St. It is serene and beautiful and not well visited.

We wandered the gardens before a festival performance and thoroughly enjoyed the variety. Someone---probably many---do a lot of work for our enjoyment.

We visited Shakespearean Gardens last fall. The gardens are beautifully kept. Such a special place and we were fortunate to see butterflies!

Pick up an amazing sandwich from York Street Kitchen and walk along the river to the path that goes underneath the street and have a relaxing bite suroundes by lovely gardens and green space!

In winter we can see the trees, squirrels and the snow on the ground gives a charming view to the garden. Certainly, in the summer it is more beautiful with all flowers and leaves.
