Beautiful paths to walk and reflect. Fun art and aspects to different components of the garden including: gong, chicken coop, labyrinth with a gnome protector, and more. Great way to spend 1-2 hours.

Unique plants and sculptures among woodlands and ponds, streams and marshes. Very enjoyable – other worldly.

This is a lovely little spot to take the kids on a lazy afternoon. It’s unclear whether it’s a market or just a public service, but it’s a great stop.
