This expansive complex of waterside gardens is a work in progress, but it's well worth exploring. It's a natural habitat being gently coaxed into a more manicured state, with pathways through the mossy forest featuring gardens with different themes and flowers, plus an alley of more than 1,000 birch trees. Throughout, the walks are quiet and lush; one of the best trails runs along much of the tidal shoreline that's part of the property.
