Hidden amongst a covering of trees and an underplanting of wildflowers and ferns, you may just find the Secret Garden. This secluded garden space features a small pond, a waterfall, a miniature red bridge, and a small picnic area. A perfect setting for visitors looking to enjoy a private moment of peace and tranquility.
A rustic stone fireplace sits near the entrance to the Secret Garden. This fireplace was constructed in 1931 for Willard Dow. A newspaper article once described this spot as an “ideal location for picnic parties.” The Dow family held many family gatherings in the gardens over the years.
