The arched "gate" in the above photo leads out of the garden proper along the Lake Trail to the Overlook Rest Garden located at the very edge of the bluff. It is approximately 7 1/2 ft. tall and 4 ft. wide. There are four different arch "gates" in the Gardens at Waters East.
This is one of several simple brick and stone benches placed around the gardens for rest and viewing.
The above walkway leads to the main entry gate for the Gardens at Waters East. Covered in Golden Hops vines, one enters a "cave like" enclosure before bursting out into the Main Entry Garden. Notice how there is a real sense of mystery and the unknown when approaching this space.
This is the seating bench and area for viewing in the Lily Path and Birdbath Garden.
The photo was taken in late Fall so as to better show the seating area.
