Lauded in the village as the “secret” garden, the Gardens at St. Luke is a little known oasis to escape the city. High brick walls run the perimeter of the garden, creating a perfect retreat to read and smell the flowers and sketch.
The gardens’ southwest orientation and heat-retaining brick walls create a warm micro-climate, allowing a wide variety of flora and fauna to thrive. This green space, with its abundance of berries and flowers, provides a small but important way-station for migrating birds and butterflies during the spring and fall seasons. Over 100 species of birds and 24 types of moths and butterflies have been recorded.
The Garden has asked all visitors to be masked. The garden doesn’t open until noon on Saturday which is the reason we’re starting late.
