Explore Enchanted Woods

Discover the magic of a fairy-tale garden with a visit to Enchanted Woods. Designed to look as though it were created by fairies, this three-acre plot covered by majestic oak trees has several play areas to climb in, on, and over, including a Faerie Cottage with a thatched roof, a giant Bird’s Nest, and an Acorn Tearoom for make-believe tea parties. Enchanted Woods encourages children and their families to engage in imaginative play and creativity.
