Deep Cut Gardens
Deep Cut Gardens is located on Red Hill Road, across from Tatum Park. This 54-acre horticultural park contains a wide variety of plant life, both native and cultivated. The land was bequeathed to the Park System by the Wihtol family in 1977 and has been open to the public since 1978.
Visitors are encouraged to tour the many gardens within the park, including the Display Garden (which has flowers and edible plants, including herbs) the Japanese Themed Garden (featuring a Bonsai collection), the Parterre Rose Garden (with roses and other flowers planted in patterns) and several greenhouses. With the environment in mind, there is also a Home Composting Demonstration Facility, which displays various methods that are available to the public to create sustainable composting systems at home. The Horticultural Center (formerly the home of the Wihtol family) houses a library, restrooms, a room for park activities and offers a beautiful view of the park. In addition to the man-made contributions to this land, there are un-touched, wooded areas, several ponds and wide open fields to enjoy.
Be sure to visit the Parks Department website to view the many programs and activities offered at this and other parks throughout the township.
