Flower gardens planted and tended by the Master Gardener organization are one of Door counties hidden treasures. A very worthy stop.

Beautiful little garden with lots of great ideas for home gardening enthusiasts. Tranquil and contemplative. Even has a little fairy/toad hollow garden area for kids. Free, but you'll want to leave a donation.

Visited with 16 year old granddaughter, we both enjoyed the experience. I would stop again, in our next Door visit.
