Windrush Gardens

Majestic live oaks and ancient crape myrtles create a shady canopy over azaleas and camellias in the Windrush Gardens, evoking a sense of tranquility and peace. Steele Burden (1900-1995), who was influenced by the gardens of Europe and the surviving gardens of 19th century Louisiana plantations, designed Windrush. The winding paths are ideal for strolling and enjoying the 25 acres of landscaped spaces.
