An easy walking pathway leads you through wooded and open meadows with sculptures from places like the Smithsonian on display. The spice is added to your walks in the fall when you start to spot the tiny fairy houses built amongst the trees. Unforgetable!

Wholeheartedly agree with other enthusiastic reviewers about this hidden gem. Excellent for younger kids, both exploring outside and inside at the creative lab and nature nook. Another bonus was the Marketplace featuring local artists in Saturday morning.

Sorry folks. The indoor art show was very nice, but there were very few sculptures and lots of gnomes. The grounds were serene and lovely. I've been to several other exquite scupture gardens, the best one being in New Orleans!
