We went here on a Sunday and did the free outside garden tour...what a wonderful place. I could see myself sitting in the Oriental garden meditating peacefully. The sculptures through out the garden are all well done and the setting is excellent. This place is well worth a visit and spending some time.... Take a book. You may want to... More

The gardens are absolutely fabulous! Lush, well thought out layout, with ponds, meditation garden, and beautiful pergolas. There are lovely places to have your picnic lunch or just to sit and contemplate the beauty. This is my new go-to place when out of town guests come in. A taste of colonial Florida architecture- bring your camera! A very lovely place... More

These gardens are a hidden treasure in Palm Beach. Meticulously kept, with great variety of specimens and a lovely japanese garden. The grounds and sculptures are beautiful. They have a great library with lots of atmosphere, charming children's library, art exhibits, and cultural activities all winter. Stop by and pick up the brochure describing all the activities.

You'll find so many great options here.. lectures during the week, Opera from the Met on some weekends, evening concerts, art classes, and a wonderful garden to still through and learn about Florida plants. As a native, I am so proud of this resource for the community.
