The Annmarie Garden is charming. The Fairy Trail is special fun for little ones, with the challenge of discovering dozens and dozens of fairy houses hidden in the woods along the garden trail. We enjoyed the sculptures on loan from the Smithsonian, and the water...More

Hubby and I walked the trail and enjoyed the sculptures and the Fairy houses and garden displays. It was a nice forest and shady path to enjoy the sculptures. I highly recommend a visit to this sculpture garden.

Modern sculpture is not really my "thing" - but beautiful grounds, fun fairy houses (through September), and an amazing "art in bloom" show (florists' creations complementing artwork). Absolutely worth visiting.
