Topiary is really something cool to see.They were about 80 topiaries on display. Several of those were arches and stuff, but they had a swan, growling bear, elephant, lion, trophies, giraffes and several other stuff. They give you a map so you can see what you are looking at. They also have a mansion on sight that you can tour.

We had purchased tickets to tour five mansions in the newport area. This home/garden is around a 20 to 30 minute drive from the other mansions. Although it was a nice change, we preferred the other mansions over this viewing. Next time were in the area, we will choose a different mansion to tour over this one.

Gorgeous scenery and a unique theme. Pretty and a great location. If you get a chance, walk across the street and visit Portsmouth Abbey as well!

Hello, Like many fellow reviewers, the Green Animals Topiary Garden (and accompanying historic house) was one of the available selections on our Newport "Mansions" admission package. While in Newport proper, we visited four of the more well-known gilded-age mansions. It was on our way out of town (not far from Newport) at the end of our trip (on our way... More

Spent a solid hour here enjoying the wonderful topiary gardens and house tour. They provide a map with all the different topiary animals on it, which was great for kids discovery. Now I just face the challenge of convincing my son that he can't create animals in our own yard's bushes.

I've been to the Gardens many times over a 40 year period. Husband is from Portsmouth and grew up watching the animals being created. I really enjoyed the gardens, and the skill of the gardeners is very good.

The Green Animals Topiary Garden, which is part of the Newport Mansions ticket, is a cute garden that has topiaries shaped like animals ranging from lions to birds to teddy bears. You'll spend probably less than an hour here, but it is something that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

This is not Disney where the topiaries are shaped on metal wires. These are grown and trimmed into shapes taking many years.It is artistry at it's best thanks to the loving care of the Preservation Society Of Newport County. Their stewardship is what makes it all happen. Besides the garden is a charming house belonging to the Brayton family who... More

We visited the Green Animals as one of the attractions included in the five-mansions deal that you can get if you buy a ticket to see The Breakers or one of the other mansions in Newport. It was a little further out of town than I expected, so it took a bit of a drive to get there. The house... More
