Owner description: The Garden Door was designed and is maintained by the Door County Master Gardeners. TGD is nestled behind barns at the UW Peninsular Ag Research Station, which is located a few miles north of Sturgeon Bay on Highway 42. Enter at the south driveway and go straight back past the barns. The entry gate is on your left. TGD is the only free public garden in Door County. It is open from dawn until dusk every day. A donation box is located on the right as you exit through the gate. Enjoy the double kaliedascope, fairy garden. Meditation tunnel. Wander and enjoy the tranquility.

This garden is a colorful hidden gem, very pretty and tranquil ~ be sure to bring a camera! A must for any gardener....Located just past Sturgeon Bay on Hwy 42, be careful not to miss it as there are not many signs. You'll be glad you stopped!

The gardens were very pretty and my 8 month old daughter loved seeing all the flowers and fun displays. Plus, it is free to visit.

The Garden Door is a lovely floral/decorative garden located just north of Surgeon Bay. Open year round (although a lot more interesting spring to fall than in winter!) there is a lot to see and it makes a great spot for a picnic with some newly installed tables. Don't neglect to see the Garden Next Door which is located to the north of the Garden Door. The GND is a set of community garden plots for the master gardeners including plots that are maintained together with youth groups.
