Look at, learn about, and love the plant life around you. Over the past 100+ years, we have grown into an expansive outdoor laboratory and landscape garden.
At Secrest, our beautiful theme gardens illustrate the use of style, color and texture within plant habitats to establish a sustainable landscape. Enjoy our gardens and discover plant selections for yours. Stroll our paved walkways through forests and meadows.
Check out the Fortress at the Hogs-back, embankment slide and pavilion complete with giant frogs, tortoises and more...for kids of ALL ages! Make the most of your environment by spending time in ours. For the health and safety of children and pets, please do not play in, or drink from, ponds and water features.
On this late-February walk, enjoy winter scenes of Witchhazel, Lenten Rose, colorful conifers, native grasses and Parrotia.
