Japanese Gardens at Cedar Hill

Roxbury, CT
Water feature, Scenic view, Dry/xeriscape, Meadow, Fruit/vegetables, Rare plants/plant collection, Substantial native plants, Garden structure/sculpture, Woodland/shade garden

This garden is open twice this year: June 4 and September 10.

This Japanese garden is intended to evoke a sense of serenity, as different rooms invite the visitor to pause and reflect. Stones and ledges throughout reside harmoniously with specimen trees and plantings that marry color, texture, and shape. The water features induce a visual and auditory tranquility, encouraging meditation. From the teahouse, one has a commanding view of much of the garden with its borrowed Litchfield Hills landscape. Proceed through a stone garden to a series of geometrically patterned orchards and connecting footpaths.

Open Days 2023: Sunday, June 4 and Sunday, September 10
June 4: 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
September 9: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Please note: This garden's June 4 Open Day hours have changed due to this garden's Digging Deeper. The June 4 Open Day hours are now 12-4.
