Although only opened to visitors for a few years, clearly many years of planning and work went into developing a couple hundred acres of this granite and ledge strewn terrain. Their are more than 6 types of gardens, from a special children's garden with little play houses and teaching areas to a garden for all 5 senses to a hillside garden down a rocky fault leading to the water. We had a lovely and convenient lunch at the visitor center featuring many home garden fresh items, but also perfect haddock stew and an exotic BLT.
An electric cart made rounds to help shorten the uphill climb from the waterfront to a lovely waterfall and water garden. We caught a glimpse of a small wedding party in one area, the brides maid in royal blue with a red fascinator in her hair. The gift shop was full of garden related items and there was much indoor and outdoor art, often for sale. We spent three hours on a Sunday afternoon, leaving at the 5pm closing, and already planning a return trip. I would recommend these gardens to anyone with the slightest interest in the outdoors, parks, trees or flowers, or water conservation.
