After a long drive, this was just what we needed. Small when compared to botanical gardens we have visited, but a well planned and refreshing nature walk. Enjoyed the sculptures and fairy villages.

Outdoor sculptures on a 1/4 mile walk, stunning indoor exhibit of paint and photography of the skies, topical whimsy of a fairy garden scattered throughout woods as are the sculptures, many on loan from the artists or a Washington DC museum. I'd call it a "must-see" while anywhere near this part of the shore . Small fee is well worth... More

Visited the Fairy and Gnome Festival which is primarily set up for kids, but it was a great walk around the park and neat to see all of the hard work by artists for this event. Was worth the $5 admission.

Organized, details, nicely planned and orchestrated in all of their events. Lots of diverse activities during an event as well, such as dance, choral, orchestra, and art. If you haven't been here, check out their schedule for 2017 and make a plan!

Very unusual gardens with modern sculptures and a smaller fun area for children. The art museum has some great paintings and photography displays

What a great place to visit! You walk around the gardens, looking at different sculptures. There's also a small museum and gift shop, plus a picnic area. We visited during a sea glass market, which was a lot of fun!

The added beauty is they have a very nice gift shop and gallery that displays works of local artists. They offer many classes in a large variety of mediums. They also host juried craft shows. One of the largest is held in September (usually the... More

What a great place to stroll around, see magnificent outdoor sculptures, find little treasures hidden in the woods and go inside to see gorgeous art on display. Right now is the Spectacular Skies art exhibit upstairs in the gallery and it is fantastic!

We visited on Sunday and it was very empty and quiet. The admission is $5, you get to take a walk through the woods and look at their multiple sculptures, there is a playground area with some picnic tables, and an observation deck. It is just gorgeous and very peaceful. My favorite part was the wooden faces exhibit. Inside there... More
