Schoepfle Garden

Schoepfle Garden, located in Birmaingham, Ohio, is part of the Lorain County Metro Parks system.  It's a 74 acre garden, bordered by the Vermillion River, that features formal gardens and woodlands.  Visitors will see collections of American holly, conifers, rhododendrons, a topiary, and a beautiful rose garden.
There's also a lovely children's garden on the property.  It's a musically-themed garden in which kids can ride a carousel, climb a rocky "g" cleff, and crawl through a Flute-A Piller.
 
 


 
The garden is open daily fom 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM from April through October, and from 8:00 to 4:30 PM from November through March.  Admission is free.

  1. Fun piano path, it reminds me of Tom Hanks in the movie Big playing Blue Moon. It's so refreshing to read your garden posts.
