Green Animals Topiary Garden
Even those who are not avid gardeners will enjoy this sprawling estate, located just a few miles from downtown Newport. Generations of gardeners have created topiary trees and hedges in all sorts of shapes and sizes, including the legendary animals. The garden is the oldest of its kind in North America and was once owned by a wealthy textile merchant. The stately Victorian home also has orchards and vegetable and herb gardens, in addition to the whimsical and elegant topiaries. Self-guided and garden maps are available (tours take approximately 90 minutes).
We all loved walking through the gardens with their winding pathways, and beautiful blooms. We had fun finding the various topiary figures. My 2 year old grandson loved the wide open lawns where he could run, and the rocking animals set here and there upon them. He also enjoyed trekking thourgh the "forest" of bamboo. The only thing we missed was the house. Be warned, the house is only open for tours on weekends, not during the week. But the gardens and the view of Narragansett Bay are both worth seeing. And my grandson will also add that he found a good train in the giftshop to bring home.
