The Gardens of Blithewold

Length: 1 hour program

Blithewold, located in Bristol, RI, is 33 acres of lawns, gardens, specimen trees, and historic stone structures. Walking the grounds, you may be drawn to the cool shade of the Bosquet (“enclosed woodland”), enjoy the solitude of the Water Garden, absorb the history of the Enclosed Garden, or be dazzled by the abundance of the Display Gardens. Photographs of the transition of the garden through time, and throughout the season, are used to illustrate this remarkable American garden treasure.


*Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum can bring an educational program to your club, library or community group! Choose from one of the options below. Do you have a special request? Give us a call and we can work with you to deliver a custom program. We've done programs for Historical Societies, colleges and universities, libraries, assisted living residences, garden clubs and annual meetings for several types of community organizations.
