Schedel Foundation and Gardens

The Schedel Foundation and Gardens is a 17 acre site located near the bend of the Portage River in Elmore, Ohio.  The foundation was established in 1963 by the Schedel family to protect and preserve their estate so that future generations could enjoy it.  The gardens were opened to the public in 1991, after the Schedels passed away.




 Visitors will see a lot of Japanese maples, pines, and lilacs, as well as statues and fountains.  Formal gardens include a Japanese garden, a Kitchen Garden, Perennial Garden, and a Rose Garden.
   The gardens are open from May through October, Tuesday - Saturday from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM .  On Sunday, they are open from 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM.  Admission for adults is $10.00 and for children, it's $6.00.
