Hauck Botanic Gardens is located in Cincinnati, Ohio. It's a lovely place not too far from where I live. The gardens are also known by the not-so-flattering name of "Sooty Acres" because of the industrial soot caused by local coal mines that were in use when the garden was first made. Hauck Botanic Gardens, built in 1934, was the private garden and tree sanctuary of Cornelius J. Hauck, president of the Cincinnati Park Board.
The garden covers eight acres and features a wildflower garden (pictured), a daylilly garden, hosta garden, a daffodil garden, and a dahlia garden. Mr. Hauck planted about 900 different types of trees and shrubs on the property, including beech, oak, magnolia, and azaleas. The nice thing, is that all of these trees are labeled.
The gardens are open from dawn to dusk. A permit is required to enter the park. You can either purchase a day permit for $3.00, or a year permit (good for all Cincinnati parks) for $10.00.
interesting lookingardens---especially would love the wildflower part!ReplyDelete
They are really pretty!Delete
I"ve got a friend in Cincy - we've been all over but never to these gardens. Guess I need to visit her again, and hey - we could catch up in person.ReplyDelete
Very nice pics and the entrance fee is reasonable
A lot of people don't know about these gardens. If you come back to Cincinnati, I hope you get to see them. And yes, perhaps we could meet in person. That would be fun!Delete
Cincy is certainly dressed in her finest; very nice!ReplyDelete
It does look nice, and not at all what you would picture for a garden named, "sooty acres!"Delete
Someone else posted about those gardens in April - beautiful place!ReplyDelete
Well, that's interesting. Not too many people know about this garden, so it must've been a fellow Cincinnattian.Delete
Nice! Wonder when would I bee in Cincinnati ... Btw. My garden is getting there --not quite but slowly ...ReplyDelete
Glad to hear your garden is making progress. It takes time, but I'm sure it will be lovely when it's all together.Delete
My lord, that looks gorgeous!! The year pass I would definitely take, hahaha. And over nine hundred different types of trees, jeez. It sounds like a work of outside art. Would love to visit there someday, thats for sure.ReplyDelete
