Panoramas: Middle Valley
Poets Walk Park

Drag your mouse in the image to control.

Poet's Walk Park celebrates the connection between landscape and poetry. The park's mown and gravel paths provide access to the 120 acres of fields and forest.

The park's design reflects 19th century picturesque style of American landscape design. The extraordinary vistas, sunlit fields and thick forest were the focus of landscape architect Hans Jacob Ehlers vision for the property in 1849. Using walls of foliage and breaks in the rise of a field or a stone wall, he creates several "outdoor rooms", each evoking a different atmosphere.

You are invited to enjoy the sweeping vistas from the park's paths, fields and ravines that speak to you and the poet in you. Take a moment to sit on a bench, read a poem, or better still, scribe a line or two of your own on a blank page.

The park is open 9am till dusk. Please carry out anything you carry in. Please leash and clean up after your dog. Many of the pathways are 100% handicapped accessible.
