This unique garden at the Preserve holds a prominent place in American garden history, both as the work of a distinguished designer and as the representation of a time of significant growth and development in American landscape design. The combined artistry, imagination, and passion of the garden’s designer, Beatrix Farrand, and her clients, Abby and John D. Rockefeller Jr., gave life to one of the most impressive gardens in the United States. East meets West through the insertion of an English flower garden within an Asian inspired landscape.
Located in Seal Harbor, the garden is designed to be at floral peak in August. It is open from mid-July until early September. Visitation is by reservation only. The number of visitors is limited to ensure the quality of each visitor’s experience and to protect the wellbeing of the garden.
