In the early 1920s, planners were set to create a lake in the valley that is now Duke Gardens. Funds were short back then and they began planting instead. Now, this is one of the most beautiful scenes around. Comprised of three main sections, the original terraces, the Blomquist garden of native plants and the Culberson Asiatic arboretum, the gardens are a treat all year round but make their best show in spring when the tulips are blooming. Bring a picnic and set out a blanket among the flora or just relax under a shady tree. Admission is free.
