They offer wonderful lectures by nationally known speakers, great concerts, great art exhibits, interesting authors conducting book discussions and on and on. Lovely outdoor garden area to stroll through and learn about native plant species. The pride of Palm Beach!

Renovations ongoing, however the Garden is open and well worth the trip. Be sure to pick up a brochure at the gate explaining the sculptures then take your time. There's a lot to see in lovely surroundings. My personal favorite was The Wing, tho that...More

I had the opportunity to catch a spy flick here a few weeks back with a home-town friend and was thrilled to go. It seems like a nice community of people who know each other and are interested in supporting the arts.

My favorite thing to do here is paint in the Gardens. There's a lot to choose from and areas with shade. They also have lectures and cultural events which are interesting, but look it up as they charge for a lot of them. The parking...More

The center of culture in Palm Beach, this is a landmark well worth a visit. The gardens of the Society are exquisite - especially the little jewel of the Japanese Garden. Check operating hours not to be disappointed....

name of walkway across from society of four arts? (2 Replies)
