Yew Dell Botanical Gardens - Fairy Garden

Fairy Forest Village

Early Spring to Early Winter

Yew Dell’s Fairy Garden is hidden deep in the serpentine garden in a collection of conifers. We encourage children and adults alike to explore this enchanted area. Our second holly allee leads you to the entrance where the fairies have taken residence. A group of visionary volunteers built these fairy houses using natural materials. The volunteers (and fairies) take great pride in their homes. We ask visitors to be respectful and mindful in this area.
