Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden

October 1-March 31: 6:00am-6:00pm

Admission is free to all from the day after Labor Day

Dogs of all sizes are allowed. Dogs must be well behaved, leashed at all times, and please bring bags to clean up after your pet and dispose of waste properly.

The garden holds more than 2,500 rhododendrons, azaleas, and companion plants. During the fall, many companion trees add dramatic coloring. Spring-fed Crystal Springs Lake surrounds much of the garden, attracting many species of birds and waterfowl.

    I added some pictures we took. I tagged the dogs I knew, but there are some untagged. Also, sadly, I didn't get pics that turned out of everyone. :(

    Misaki had a decent time. She's not always thrilled to play, so this was actually good for her.

    Nice Meet-Up ~ The wealther was Great!
    It would have been nice if a location within the garden itself was designated so Shiba Meet-Up members could find eachother.

    I'm not going to be able to make either event way too much going on. I trust you guys though can get things together... :) It's such a nice day...I really have no idea if people will choose to do the indoor one or the outdoor one.

    Okay, this has been hanging around for awhile, and if we want to do this before they start charging for admission, we're going to have to schedule this in this month. How's the 24th sound to everyone? The weather seems like it might be a little better that weekend, but those longer forecasts aren't always spot on.
