This was our first time coming to the Anne-Marie Garden and we loved seeing the festive lights throughout the garden. The weather was brutally cold but the music and the hot chocolate inside made a nice end to our evening.

An easy walking pathway leads you through wooded and open meadows with sculptures from places like the Smithsonian on display. The spice is added to your walks in the fall when you start to spot the tiny fairy houses built amongst the trees. Unforgetable!

Wholeheartedly agree with other enthusiastic reviewers about this hidden gem. Excellent for younger kids, both exploring outside and inside at the creative lab and nature nook. Another bonus was the Marketplace featuring local artists in Saturday morning.
