Meditation Garden

Location

East side of the Gardens along the pond

Features

The Meditation Garden is intended to be just that: a place to reflect and meditate. It’s patterned after meditation gardens in Asia, with flowering crabapple trees, azalea, viburnum, and a Ginkgo grove. Oriental-style gates lead into the area, while artistically placed rocks border the pond. Only part of the Meditation garden has been developed, along the south end of the pond, but we have a design for extending the north from here along both sides of the pond.  This design includes a Japanese teahouse, an arched bridge over a narrow part the pond, landscaping of the island, and a viewing platform at the edge of the pond.
