Beautiful peaceful gardens with intertwined beautiful sculptures. Beautifully kept the Japanese garden was a real treasure with the Koyie in several the ponds. The foliage was a lush and well-maintained and most were identified with easily visible markers. The bronze statues of Roosevelt and Churchhill sitting on a park bench lends itself to a great photo opportunity. Plenty of places... More

Gallery is in a former home with beautiful wood floors, high ceilings, and saltillo tile with a spanish flare. Arrive at least 15 minutes before gallery opens in morning to get parking. After I left two cars were jockeying for my spot. Use the extra time to walk on the bike and walking trail that runs through the site next... More

What a lovely place,tranquil, lush and beautiful. It is located just over the causeway from West Palm, convenient and a real treasure. The Garden Club of Palm Beach has maintained it, need I say more? So many great photo-ops, little gems around every corner.

I good place to reflect. The larger expanded gardens have a charming open pavilion, sculptures and paths with benches. I love the concerts and... More

My daughter and I drifted through the grounds which are devoid of lush flowers of most any kind. The trees are well maintained as are the occasional fountains.

I found this gem several years ago. My friend that lives in PB suggested that we go. What a charming location. The gardens were and remain, my favorite part.

I saw the sign for this when I was driving by and put it on my list of things to look up. Turns out, it's amazing. The gardens are so well curated and beautiful. I do wish I had more information about what I was seeing but I guess I can use my smartphone for that. There were a lot... More

Old Palm Beach charm on Intercoastal Waterway dedicated to the classic arts. Relatively inexpensive way to stay informed about music and art.

We go often for many events in drama, music, art and literary. Most events are free to members and at a nominal cost for non-members.They have a beautiful garden and sculpture park. They have a small but fine adult library and children's library.
