Visitors are welcome to bring their own blankets and enjoy a picnic on our lawn. However, we do not have picnic tables or barbecues.
Please make note of reserved areas and do not interfere, as we often have private events and weddings occurring in various locations on the property. If your party is larger than 12 or if you need special accommodations, please contact our events team at firstname.lastname@example.org to help coordinate your event.
As you enter the property, you will first arrive at Parking Lot 1, where the Artists Residency is located off to your right. If you are coming to the Villa, Garden Theatre, Carriage House, the Box Office, or to visit the hiking trails, continue past Lot 1 up the road and alongside the Great Lawn. You will see Parking Lot 2 on the right side of the Villa and lots 3 and 4 on the left side of the Villa.
Please drive slowly through the estate, as we have many visitors walking the grounds including children, the elderly, and wildlife.
