Conservatory Garden Center Fountain
The Conservatory Garden Center Fountain is the focal point of the central Italianate garden and one of the first features seen when entering from the main entrance.
The Conservatory Garden, which opened in 1937, was inspired by three types of garden design: English, French, and Italian. The Center Fountain, with its simple and geometric design, reflects the principles of Italian garden design that include order and balance. The jet fountain creates a single column of water that collects in a basin and is framed by a symmetrical arrangement of plantings, including a large lawn defined by hedged evergreens and the wisteria pergola, a large trellis.
