Mytoi, Edgartown

4.5
#3 of 6 in Parks in Edgartown
Mytoi is a small Japanese garden set within an open pine forest on Chappaquiddick Island, in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. The Trustees of Reservations owns and maintains the property.The garden's signature feature is a small pond with an island that is reached by walking over an arched footbridge. Winding footpaths take visitors through birch groves, a dell of camellia and a rock garden. A rustic shelter offers broad views of the garden and a chance to become immersed in the meditative qualities of the landscape.Across Dike Road from the garden, a quarter-mile nature trail winds through pitch pine forest to Cape Poge Wildlife Refuge and the salt marshes of Poucha Pond.

  • Beautiful gardens and an amazing staff from the Trustees.
  • Was a pleasure to visit here. I used to come here 40 years ago. Nice scenic walk. Several turtles to watch swim around.
