A druid's paradise! Stonecrop Gardens is a lovely local botanical center that specializes in alpine plants. There are many acres of foliage to walk through and enjoy, including a koi pond. Conveniently located off Rt. 301 in Cold Spring, Stonecrop isn't far from the Buddhist monastery and three stone chambers.
There is a $5 entry fee. Tea and (delicious) cake can be purchased at the arbor.
Please visit Stonecrop Gardens for more information.
