Woodland Demonstration Garden

The Woodland Garden is the largest demonstration garden.  Established in 2003 on the west side of Lake Shawnee, just north of the Garden House at SW 37th Street and West Edge Road, this is a welcome shady respite along the Lake Shawnee Trail with a breathtaking view across the lake.  Numerous shade and woodland plants grow under the treed canopy and edge walking paths to a stone bench, a seated arbor and the lake.  While there, look at the rest of the expanded Ted Ensley Botanical Garden, adjacent to the Woodland Garden and be sure to see the changes made to the area by Parks and Recreation. We welcome you to visit and learn more about the Woodland Demonstration Garden!
