Three Distinct Garden Styles
Opened in 1937, Conservatory Garden was designed by landscape architect Gilmore D. Clarke. It features six acres of meticulously planted seasonal gardens as well as statues, benches and pools of water. The Garden is actually made up of three gardens in distinctive styles: English, French and Italian.
The English garden, dotted with magnolia and lilac trees, is where visitors will find the statue of author Frances Hodgson Burnett. Crabapple trees and a wisteria pergola adorn the Italian garden, and hundreds of colourful tulips bring the French garden to life in the spring. Walter Schott's sculpture Three Dancing Maidens can be found in the French garden.
