This historic ten acre garden contains hundreds of rare, cultivated conifers from around the world. These include a unique collection of rare specimens which were originally planted in a beautiful oval design by Marian Coffin and remain a centerpiece of the collection.
Towers|Golde designed the renovations, restoration and expansion of this historic garden. Included are a new entry plaza which is based on an unrealized plan by Coffin, as well as a half-mile of realigned trail/tram route showcasing the collection, new pedestrian paths, overlooks, pavilions, a dwarf conifer display and a perimeter earthen berm with flowering shrubs to screen an adjacent trafficway.
