Just across this bridge, Evening Island awaits - a five-acre garden with curving paths, fields of flowers and grasses, and restful places to pause and enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding lakes and gardens.
Evening Island's design is inspired by the drama and simplicity of the prairie. It is characterized by vast sweeps of low-maintenance plants, combined in a bold, painterly style.
