Spring is the season of renewal, growth, of ever-evolving splendor. Our millions of tiny geophytes begin the season, blanketing our vistas with sweeps of spring-has-sprung color.

As the season unfolds, flowering trees delightfully punctuate the landscape, radiant tulips stretch toward the sun, and the delicious fragrance of wisteria floats along with the breeze, beckoning you further into the effervescent beauty of spring. Beginning April 23, our Open Air Theatre and Italian Water Garden fountains spring to life, as do our Square Fountain, Round Fountain (Flower Garden Walk), Sylvan Fountain (Peirce’s Park), and Children’s Corner fountains … bringing with them the refreshing sounds and sights of water in our Gardens.
