A stunning, inspiring and artistic garden nestled amongst the homes of West Palm Beach. Quiet solitude prevails even when children invade --- and the sculpture is fabulous.

Lovely home and garden, nestled in Palm Beach. You would not know it was there if you drove by. Walk the gardens enjoy the sculpture. And then stay for lunch...peaceful, lovely...read about Ann Norton, and you will be impressed. A woman ahead of her time.

Ann Norton is a gifted sculptor and her garden is a wonderful legacy. We expected to be in the blazing Florida sun, but surprised that most of the garden is in the shade. Her studio is a must see.

The brick sculptures are super-dramatic, and really visual. I loved the history of the gardens, and the artwork by Ann Norton spread throughout the facility. My favorite thing was actually the collection of different palm trees- so tropical!

It is not a big place... depending on your pace it could be seen in a period of 30 minutes to an hour.
