Cranbrook Gardens is officially open for the season, and admission is free through October 31, 2017, courtesy of presenting sponsor PNC Bank, and sponsors, All Seasons Independent Living, Neighborhood SEEN, and Roberts Restaurant Group. The gardens are open daily for self-guided visits.
Spanning 40 acres around historic Cranbrook House, the former home of Cranbrook’s founders, George Gough and Ellen Scripps Booth, Cranbrook Gardens is known for its formal gardens featuring fountains, statuary, lakes, streams and extensive plantings. Highlights include the Sunken Garden, Herb Garden, Bog Garden, Native Plant/Wildflower Garden, Reflecting Pool Garden, and Sundial Garden.
“The gardens are lovingly cared for by volunteers,” said Virginia Latimer, Cranbrook House & Gardens Auxiliary Chair, “they handle everything from design to planting, as well as all ongoing maintenance. We’re lucky to have a very talented and dedicated membership.”
