At the King’s Garden, we celebrate Ticonderoga’s long legacy, including an epic 18th-century narrative, landmark preservation in the 19th-century, and monumental restoration in the 20th-century. Come to the King’s Garden to explore one of the oldest cultivated landscapes in America. Explore the brick pathways in the colorful colonial revival garden designed by Marian Coffin for the Pell family in 1921. Take in all the aroma and color of this 20th-century garden and be sure to get rooted in the history of this land by seeing our other five gardens that demonstrate the layers of horticulture at Ticonderoga.

Beautiful garden!
Oct 2020
We visited the garden while touring Ft. Ticonderoga. It was so peaceful and beautiful. Being Fall, some of the flowers were already passed their peak, but there were still many in bloom and the colors were amazing!

Good for a Quick Stop
Oct 2020
As we left Ft. Ticonderoga it started to rain. But we did not want to miss a quick stop at these gardens. There is a home here that is being refurbished as part of the fort area, and looks like it will be stunning.
We were surprised to see that there were strawberries and vegetables that were still being harvested this late in the season (October). Some of the flowers were also still blooming.
Nice view of Lake Champlain from the front yard.
Worth a stop!

Well tended vegetable and flower gardens
Sep 2020
Great surprise when visiting Fort Ticonderoga was to visit the King's Garden. The soldiers were in change of feeding themselves and this extensive, well manicured garden allows us to imagine what it might have looked like 250 years ago. Beautiful flowers and a bountiful vegetable garden with more formal gardens within the adjacent walled-in area.

Part of Fort Ticonderoga ticket.

Beautiful in late summer. Would not head to the Fort for just the garden, but it was nice to walk through on a hot day.

Beautiful and relaxing
Aug 2020
We visited the King's Garden first thing in the morning, upon arriving at Fort Ticonderoga and were the only people there. That made for a very peaceful experience. The garden and a few old cottage style buldings make you feel like you are in a fariy tale.

A small bite but gorgeous gardens
Sep 2019 • Friends
Free with your paid fee to enter Fort Ticonderoga, plan to spend 30 minutes or so enjoying the colors.

tip: picnic benches are abundant so if you packed a lunch, here’s a nice place to munch. Some are even in the shade.

We went while visiting Fort Ticonderoga as this within the compound of the fort. This is a really nice garden worth the visit.

Nice garden...take the tour
Aug 2019
I don't think I'd have enjoyed the Garden nearly as much if we didn't take the tour. The fife and drum escort is a nice touch.

As previously stated in my Fort Ticonderoga Review
Jul 2019 • Couples
Severely over looked portion of the park. I understand that budget is tight with other projects but, some TLC is definitely needed in the garden.
