Lynden Sculpture Garden- Breathtaking in fall

I remember the first time I stopped in to see Lynden in Fall. I was blown away by the colors reflected in the pond and appreciated all the sculptures in my photos.  Every year I make it back at this time.  If you've never been here, you need to make this a destination in the next 2 weeks.  You might clean up the kids a bit and get some nice family photos here too.

This is the former home of Harry & Peg Bradley but is now a private park with art.  The program seems to grow every year, and if you're an educator, you need to check out the Free Educators Day on October 18, where you can explore how art can be used in curriculum.  Bring your family with you!  On the same date, you get a rare opportunity to walk through the gardens with a tree expert who can share information about the trees and answer nature questions. Autumn Tree Walk with Sharon Morrisey.

If you have a dog, there's a dog day every month where pooches are welcome.  I borrowed a dog once and found this is a great way to keep the geese population down.

Admission is $12 for adults and $8 for children.  You can become a member if you plan to visit more frequently, starting at $40.
