Under development since 2000, the Heritage Garden offers a living connection with early gardens on Cortes Island.
A fragrant and peaceful space, the garden features apple trees and flowering shrubs and roses, many from island homesteads. Heritage perennials include an ever-increasing collection of peonies, trumpet lilies, and dahlias.
Plant labels and an interpretive panel aid in the enjoyment of a stroll through the garden.
An illustrated brochure is available showing the garden layout and a listing of plants.
Visitors are welcome to enjoy their lunch at a picnic table under the shade of the apple trees and Heritage Garden greeting cards are available for purchase in the Museum Shop.
