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.
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.
