Enjoyed the statues of Ann Norton and the lush green of the garden. Also had a unique chance to see a statue recently installed in the garden, called Presenza and created by a friend in Rome.

Within a mile of downtown West Palm, and across from the Intracoastal Waterway, you have the opportunity to experience the vision of Ann Norton through her monumental sculptures in the family garden that includes 300 kinds of palms! After your walkabout, be enthralled by the very intimate visit to the artist's studio, which looks as if she has just stepped... More

My wife and I visited the gardens the gardens several years ago for an evening fund raising party and really didn't get to appreciate the grounds and the studio. This visit was on an early Saturday morning during a special exhibit. The gardens, just off Flagler Drive and the inter-coastal waterway south of downtown West Palm Beach, were just beautiful....

Ann Norton did the world a favor when she left this wonderful sculpture garden and park in place for the community. It is a testament to her conviction to her passion and the work she did is beautiful and very well done. The thought she put into everything she did is evident the minute you start your walk.

Blink and you might miss this gem. My GPS said I was "there" but it wasn't until I asked a passer-by that I learned I had parked in front of it. Though the house is a charming place to browse, it is the adjacent walled garden that is the real draw. The monumental sculptures are by turns hilarious and enigmatic.... More

Ann Norton's story is interesting and her large scale brick sculpture is unusual. Great docent gave lots of detailed info and the studio is an artist's dream! Near the Norton Museum, this makes an easy stop for those looking for something of "old Florida" with an art connection. Pleasant garden to stroll. Changing Exhibits of work by today's local (I...

I was not sure what to expect when I found this place online. When you pull up to the address it is on a residential street and is very unassuming. You walk in though and out to the gardens and they are amazing. You are free to roam the grounds and explore on your own. Ann Norton's work is wonderful... More

Very relaxing and adjacent to the Library which is an excellent place to visit also. On a sunny day, a great way to spend a few hours. Books at the library are cheap. Do yourself a favor and visit. If you are near City Place, walk over the bridge if you can.

Ann Norton was not a familiar name to us before our trip to the Palm Beaches. Turns out she did some very interesting monumental sculptures and placed them in a pleasant garden setting around the house she shared with Mr. norton...yes, that Mr. Norton.
