Mytoi, Edgartown

4.6
#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.

    Was a pleasure to visit here. I used to come here 40 years ago. Nice scenic walk. Several turtles to watch swim around.

    Beautiful place -free to visit and enjoy. We took the truck tour to the lighthouse which was definately worth the money which helps preserve the park. All of the staff and our tour guide were very friendly and enjoyable.
