Contemplative Garden


The Contemplative Garden extends across the main pathway. On the Museum side, there are central, right, and left beds. On the opposite side, there is a shady enclosure with a fountain consisting of water dropping from above onto a series of small bells and then into a pool. A bench allows the garden to live up to its name. Small planters occur on the western and eastern sides of the shelter.
