A peek behind the curtain of one of Lake Forest Park’s Secret Gardens

The leaves and flowers of this secret garden were sparkling. The rain refreshed everything.

Happy Hour trailer
Walk through the various mini gardens and you will see a perennial garden where the owner has lovingly replanted after a huge tree came down and the City removed some dangerous laurel plants. Wander past a “Happy Hour” trailer with a small patio, perfect for a relaxing summer drink with friends.

Follow unique paving up the steps and you are in another garden space with a deep pond, home to orange, white and golden koi. The pond fills from two waterfalls. A pathway leads you naturally to the terraced gardens awash with shade plants---beautiful hostas and abundant ferns.


This garden is a labor of love. The owner of this 100-year-old house has created the gardens over the last 40 years. She and her two sons, Jordan and Kajo who do lots of the heavy duty hauling, have planted almost all of the trees and plants in the gracious and inviting garden.
