Review for MCLAUGHLIN GARDEN, South Paris, ME, USA
I have visited many public and private gardens throughout the world and feel that the McLaughlin Garden is a hidden treasure of Western Maine.
The annual lilac blooms are magnificent in size, variety, and setting! The garden is well-tended and provides a good educational experience for all gardeners, from novices through experts. Helpful and friendly staff, lovely gift shop, and wonderful plant sales enhance a visitor's enjoyment of the historic site. I have attended the educational presentations and cultural events, but mainly love to just find peacefullness in the many shaded areas of the winding paths and restful benches among the native plants.
