  • We came to boxer wood gardens as a side trip and enjoyed walking the trails and through fields. My collie had fun romping in the field; we were the only ones there. There's a cool fairy village and a ...  more »

  • A remarkable garden with hundreds of species of trees. Loved the fairy forest and the children's play areas. Would definitely love to bring the grandchildren.  more »

  • Two adults and two teens in our family went here and had fun like we were little again. Awesome memories running around in the rain. What a beautiful place to visit again and again.
  • Boxerwood was a little hard to find without help from my gps, but I definitely feel like visiting was worth it. I came here early in spring, so there weren't too many flowers, but I still enjoyed the paths. I especially liked the little fairy houses in the fairy forest. The experience I had at Boxerwood was nice peaceful afternoon of listening to birds and enjoying nature. I even got to see some deer! Since the park is free it really is worth a visit.
  • The best "park" around. Great for the whole family, or just for a quiet stroll
  • We've visited the park one time. The mud kitchen was a big hit with my kid and they got super dirty. They also have a digging area, trails, a tunnel, large chalk boards, and a creek for playing.
  • Loved the Children's Area!
