The Lee Memorial Garden in New Canaan

New Canaan is rich with hidden treasures created by individuals with passion and creativity. These 2.7 acres of pure woodland bliss and spectacular display in spring is a gift left to us by George S. Lee who spent 40 years establishing this extraordinary refuge. The Lee Memorial Garden is a grateful tonic for the soul after the snows have melted and the winds subsided. After a day of real estate, or yet one more load of laundry, a stroll through the gardens relaxes my shoulders that have somehow managed to creep up to my ears. Do yourself a favor and leave your blackberry and your cell phone in the car. We all need time off from the world and dinner can wait.
