Conifers and graceful Japanese Maples fill this garden. Look for the Ginkgo biloba trees with their fan-shaped leaves that turn bright yellow in the fall. This is the oldest species of tree in the world. Though related to conifers, it has leaves instead of needles.
The Weeping Atlas Blue Cedar tree, the geometric and free form topiaries, grafted cedars of blue and green and spectacular grafted red and green Japanese Maple tree all add their individual charm to this Garden. Look at the different hues from light to dark green and blue on the trees. Don't forget to check out the hostas. They grow in deep shade and there are over 500 hostas in the Park.
For the little ones, Claudia's Carousel is a delight. It's an antique carousel sized just right for the 1-4 year old crowd. The carousel was manufactured by William F. Mangels and the horses were carved by M.C. Illions.
Buy lunch or a snack at one of our restaurants, take it down to the deck area, and enjoy the beauty and serenity as you eat. Claudia's Garden is also a beautiful location to host your wedding. Visit our wedding page for more information!
