Shrewsbury has a Secret Garden. But you don’t need to keep it a secret!
Want to surprise and delight the kids with a trip to Shrewsbury’s secret garden? Local resident, Chief Joseph, welcomes everyone to his enchanted garden and .4 mile whimsical trail on his property. You will find statues, sculptures, inspiring quotes and so much more. If there is a breeze, you will hear the wind chimes. Bring a book, take a book. You will even find a Free Library on the trails.
The main trail takes you from one Shrewsbury neighborhood along a pond to another neighborhood. If you aren’t paying attention, you will miss the side trail (near the bridge) that takes you to a friendly forest of paths and friends. We loved the crushed colorful glass that covered the forest floor in this section. The pretty sight and the sounds of the crunch were such a surprise.
There weren’t many people on the trail when we visited but someone told us that it has grown a lot since they were there a few years ago. It appears the artist has added paths and new sculptures.
Note: Springtime can bring muddy conditions. Boots might be a good choice for the kids!
How to get there:
Plug in 2 Stoney Hill Rd, Shrewsbury into your GPS. There is free street parking at the entrance.
We hope you enjoy the Shrewsbury Secret Garden as much as we do! Looking for more great family hiking/walking trails? See our WCKC Hikes Page.
