Hiking & Trails

The Gardens of Woodstock is more then just plants, it’s a destination.

The Gardens feature several waterfalls and ponds. The Gardens now includes 5-separate waterfalls. The two largest have over 5 foot drops and evoke serenity with the sound of falling water. You can identify two more by the sound of bubbling brooks and small catch ponds that cascade into a large pond.

The Gardens is the perfect atmosphere for a one of a kind wedding, alive with blooms to delight you and your guests. Each wedding is unique and here at The Gardens we pride ourselves at making yours as distinctive as possible.
