I think this was probably once a very nice little place. It is clearly not high on any priority lists as to maintenance these days. Very tiny.

This is a beautiful garden. I love the water features. My children always love walking the paths and the bridges over the water. Beautiful when the water lilies are in bloom.

Absolutely worth your stop if you're traveling through Newberry. It's incredibly small, but you can't tell that in pictures. Great props for family photos, and my girls loved it.

Wells Garden brings a small taste of Japan to Newberry. Small area but we'll maintained. Peaceful setting and lots of different plants to see. Everything about this garden makes you want to slow down and relax.
