Recreational Areas

Although much of The Botanic Garden remains under development, currently there are many recreational opportunities in place for visitors to enjoy. Come walk the length of Historic Barns Park on the paved trail or explore one of its many wooded paths. Pack up an outdoor meal and gather with friends and family under a canopy of towering century-old maples in the Picnic Grove. Stop in the Visitor Center’s interpretive area and gift shop or step outside to reminisce with friends in its courtyard, with Conversation Circle and Silo Pool. We also offer a unique meeting room (located on the upper level of the Visitor Center), perfect for your private special event.
