English Park

Work began on English Park around 1912. John Morris filled it mainly with plants collected in China. In keeping with English tradition, this park provides light, open views of the entire area. After years of decline culminating in an overgrown landscape in the 1960s and 1970s, these views and open spaces have been restored. The English Park contains significant collections of maples, witchhazels, dogwoods, cherries, and stewartias.
