Explore the New Island Garden

On May 22nd of this year, Wellfield Botanic Gardens unveiled its newest attraction: a Japanese-inspired island garden. Specifically created by renowned Japanese garden designer Sadafumi Uchiyama, this one-acre garden is composed of three islands. You’ll also see an elegant wooden pavilion sitting atop the main island.

The garden is designed to reveal only specific parts of its landscape from certain vantage points. Take a short stroll and explore the exquisite gardens for yourself anytime from noon to 6:00 p.m.

Bird Walks

Whether you’re a seasoned bird-watcher or just curious, these bird walks are a great way to connect with the local wildlife. The gardens host a wide variety of bird species. For the most part, you’ll learn to identify them by sight on these walks, which take place on the first Saturday of each month at 8:00 a.m.

So, if you’d like to enjoy a scenic walk while social distancing, bring comfortable shoes and binoculars. You’ll be thrilled by the picture-perfect scenes that greet you!
