This is always a wonderful place to unwind, sit a while and read, or just take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the art and gardens. I say thank you to the very wise benefactors who have successfully kept it from any commercial development.

The sculptures, rare palms, geckos and lizards, as well as Ann Norton's studio make this a wonderful place to spend an hour or so. The woman at the admission desk volunteered a lot of interesting information about Ann Norton and her work.
