    A delight to visit. Comfortable space to study, read, or just surf the Internet. In nicer weather, take a stroll through the beautiful gardens and adjoining trails. There's even a café serving treats. Check out their series of free Sunday concerts . Definitely a place to visit (or frequent) in Wolfville.
