I first visited Lakewold Gardens about a year ago. What a surprise! It's in Tacoma and I live in Seattle and I couldn't believe I'd never gone before. It's so beautiful and peaceful, with even a neat little garden shop on the premises. The grounds are gorgeous with so many beautiful plants and trees. My friend and I decided that we wanted to come back to Lakewold in all seasons as we knew it would offer year round pleasure.

Lakewold Gardens is a Lakewood treasure. A piece of history just around the corner. Care is taken to enhance its natural beauty and preserve its structures. One visit and you're sure you've come home.

Through a member of our organization Tahoma Fuchsia Society had a coversation with Stephanie at a Home and Garden Show. Upon that conversation we had a meeting with Lakewold. We were enthused to have an event at Lakewold. They have been so helpful in helping us along the way. It has evolved in more than our individual society to involving the NW Fuchsia Society of 13 clubs. We will putting on an educational event to show fuchsias through the decades. It means fuchsia from the 1800's to present. Lakewold has given us guidence from the beginning. Lakewold has helped us in advertising the event and helping by doing a special ticket on the web site to give a small amount of money for a fund raiser for our organization when they sign people for admittance that weekend. It will be held on September 9-11,2011, Donna Fellows

Our family is so thankful for Lakewold Gardens. The peace & serenity the Garden provides has been a life-saver on more than one occasion. We've enjoyed visiting the Garden for several years now. My favorite times to visit are spring, summer and fall. Actually, any time is fun - the garden is always beautiful & shows different aspects each season. The children enjoy being able to explore and play while Mom & Dad enjoy the quiet.

When we first started visiting the Garden, volunteers encouraged us to bring the kids and let them play. I appreciate the time people have taken to educate both me & my children on all the different aspects of the Garden. The volunteers are ALWAYS helpful & informative. My children have learned to love & respect all that the Garden offers.

Lakewold Gardens is wonderful. We do miss Picnic & Pops, and wish we could go to the Garden more frequently ... but the Garden & all it does is perfect. :)

First off, that Lakewold Gardens is now open to the Public and can be enjoyed by all is such a blessing and a Northwest treasure. I first becme aquaired with Lakewold throughj it's owner. Her niece Heartie Ann Look was my long-time friend and flower teacher in Santa Barabra. Her Mother was Croyden Wagner's sister. When my wife, Dorothy, and I moved up here from Santa Barbara in 1983, Heart Ann would come up to visit Aunt Eullie and we would have wonderful Ikebana Flower classes in Aunt
Eullie's Capitol Hill residence and then down to Lakewold. So it has been such joy for Dorothy and me to be able to come down to Gravely Lake Drive and visit Lakewold Gardens. Not only to, once again, take-in the unadulirated beauty of the grounds but to so enjoy all of the wonderful persons that work and volunteer here. We were last down to Lakewold to participate in the annual Christmas event, and while we were there commented, once again, how great a gift the Wagner's have left for all to enjoy and enrich our lives. I wlll be forever greatful for all my wonderful memories of Lakewold and my friend Heartie Ann for introducing us to the Wagner's up here in the Northwest. Jeffrey P. Angwin

No apparent change needed at this time, just the hope that funds will always be there to keep Lakewold open for all to enjoy.

The grounds for Lakewold Gardens are beautiful and inspiring to all gardeners in the area and they have created a wonderful place for members of the public to experience many different types of plants and gardens.

I discoved Lakewlod Gardens by way for taking my dear Mother to a Mother's Day event there a few years ago. Since then I have enjoyed becoming a senior member and supporter of Lakewold. I try to visit at least once a yera and find it just like going to a home that my family may have once lived in. I tour the gardens and take visitors there and find myself to be proud to be a part of the rich history and beauty of the place.

I first discovered Lakewold when I moved to the Pacific NW in 2000. The gardens were lovely then, but watching them further mature has been wonderful. I specially enjoy the new landscaping and artistic grace of the garden staff. The gift shop is the best one for gardeners and garden lovers. I always come away with something for my friends and something for me. I also find great and unusual plants for my yard.
It is a lovely place for a picnic or a quiet afternoon with a dear friend. So peaceful and full of flora and fauna.

Lakewold Garden has provided me so many opportunities to enjoy the nature of the NW and to share that with my family. My sisters and I have had a great time walking the grounds and then eating our lunch by the pool. I love the quiet, solutide the grounds offer as well as the wonderful gift shop. It is a beautiful park. The staff have always been very friendly and accommodating/helpful.

Lakewold offers landscape architecture by Thomas Church surrounded by rare and native plants, State Champion trees, over 900 rhododendrons, 30 Japanese maples and stunning statuary. Lakewold's Georgian-style mansion and historic architecture complete the 10 acres where visitors can step back in time to an elegant past or enjoy a relaxing moment to contemplate the future.
