The Leonard J. Buck Garden is one of the premier rock gardens in the eastern United States consisting of a series of alpine and woodland gardens situated in a 33-acre wooded stream valley.


Buck Garden is a naturalistic setting incorporating large rock outcroppings creating varying exposures and microclimates that enable different plant associations to thrive. Tucked among the rocks are rare and exotic rock garden plants. The wooded trails connecting the outcroppings are lined with beautiful wild flowers that have flourished and multiplied through the years. Throughout the garden grow various ferns. At the base of the valley walls, azaleas and rhododendrons produce a colorful display in May and early June.
