About this Outdoor Garden

This seven-acre oasis is a year-round woodland Garden that showcases the most ornamental characteristics of the eastern deciduous forest.

Mighty oaks, ashes, maples, and tulip-trees tower over flowering understory trees. Beautifully designed and highly orchestrated, this Garden peaks in the spring when waves of native shrubs and ground covers put on a spectacular show, and again in the fall when the woods fill with color.

Relax and be inspired by the brook that runs through Peirce's Woods, from 9:00 am until closing daily, mid-April through mid-October.

History of this Garden

Carved out of the larger Peirce’s Park, this seven-acre area was gradually designed and planted throughout the 1990s. The area also includes 10,000 plants that were rescued from the North Carolina mountains prior to impending highway construction.
