Poet's Walk Park celebrates
the connection between landscape and poetry. The park's
mown and gravel paths provide access to the 120 acres
of fields and forest.
The park's design reflects
19th century picturesque style of American landscape
design. The extraordinary vistas, sunlit fields and
thick forest were the focus of landscape architect
Hans Jacob Ehlers vision for the property in 1849.
Using walls of foliage and breaks in the rise of a
field or a stone wall, he creates several "outdoor
rooms", each evoking a different atmosphere.
You are invited to enjoy
the sweeping vistas from the park's paths, fields
and ravines that speak to you and the poet in you.
Take a moment to sit on a bench, read a poem, or better
