Woodland Garden

The new Woodland Garden is part of BBG's Campaign for the Next Century.

The Elizabeth Scholtz Woodland Garden will reimagine an underutilized area of BBG to showcase a unique horticultural environment and enhance visitation and accessibility throughout the Garden’s north end.

A highlight of the Woodland Garden’s design is an open-air “walled garden” featuring beautiful serpentine paths. An accessible pathway will meander through a recontoured landscape to connect the Lilac Collection, the Osborne Garden, the Native Flora Garden, and a new maple grove.

Envisioned as a source of inspiration for urban gardeners, the garden will be dedicated to plants that flourish in shady, relatively dry conditions, like ferns, sedges, and may-apples. Interpretive materials will provide visitors with tips and techniques for maintaining their own sustainable and successful urban gardens, making it ideal for holding educational programs and gatherings.
