  • The gardens we're so lovely. My favorite part was Elizabeth Lawrence garden. I'm planning to visit again.
  • Very nice, quiet garden in the city. Good to spend an hour wandering and unwinding. Not as well maintained as it could be, but that might be because I visited in the off-season.
  • This place is amazing when you consider the love that took to create it and to maintain it. Quite lovely in both the spring and on a rainy gloomy winters day.
  • This was taken during a visit in early November -- Elizabeth Lawrence House & Garden, a separate property also part of Wing Haven. Most of the Camellias were not ready to bloom yet (probably two more weeks). But there were more than enough beautiful flowers to see and enjoy.
  • What an awesome morning out with my 4 year old son. Story time in the children's garden was followed by arts and crafts. It was an excellent outdoor, hands-on experience.
