Meadow Garden

Discover new layers of beauty in our Meadow Garden. Spanning 86 acres, our newest garden features the best practices in ecological garden design.

Meander through three miles of walking and hiking trails and experience sweeps of color in our native wildflower plantings; four learning pavilions; the historic Webb Farmhouse & Galleries; and more. The story and evolution of our Meadow landscape over time is revealed as you experience the harmony of nature’s variety and man’s careful stewardship.

Access to the Meadow Garden is included in Gardens Admission!

Please note that the Meadow Garden, including the Webb Farmhouse & Galleries, may be temporarily inaccessible during periods of heavy precipitation, ice, or snow.
