Bauer Terrace in the Fall

 

Bauer Terrace

Leaving the south side of the Visitor Center, guests step onto the Bauer Terrace. Tables and chairs provide a shady place to sit under a vine covered arbor and enjoy viewing butterflies and hummingbirds. The center Martin D. Gapshis Memorial Garden, designed by Craig Bergmann, features a formal planting of lavenders, boxwoods, and trellis work with and espaliered pear and climbing roses. At the south end of the terrace, a copper roofed gazebo provides a panoramic view of the South Vista Garden.
