County Farm Park Gardens

County Farm Park has acres of installed landscapes, and hundreds of planted specimen trees (oaks, black-gums, maples, ashes and more!) There are great sensory opportunities in a special "octagonal perennial garden;" diverse and "vernacular" vegetable and flower displays in the "Project Grow Gardens;" beautiful "native woodland flowers" in Britton Woods; a "native grasses display" along the outer loop trail; and a "Kids & Trees" nursery, which is just a beginning of the developing plans for a children's playground, children's garden and accessible gardens - all with a "farm theme".  The major intentional gardens and several hidden-pockets-of-plants have been described in A Spring Garden Mini-Tour article in the Summer Newsletter (pdf).

*Plans are currently being developed for a Plantings for the Senses garden with fragrance and textures, birds, butterflies & blooms, and even examples of tasty treats!
