Ormond Beach, FL 32127
“A Garden Oasis”
Right off busy Granada Blvd. and steps away from the Granada Beach Ramp, Ormond Memorial Art Museum & Gardens offers a peaceful meditation garden with art exhibits that change frequently. Walking through this tranquil garden it is amazing how close it its to the busyness of beach traffic. The use of space is equally amazing as you walk through the labyrinth of pathways, it feels as if you are on acres instead of just a few blocks.
There are several beautiful original sculptures along the pathways of the garden that commemorate the veterans that fought in world war I and world war II, as well as the Korean war. You might want to rest in the gazebo and walk the hand painted meditation labyrinth to the center or stroll over the bridges that cover the water gardens and listen to the giant bamboo trees sway in the wind.
In addition to the gardens, the museum offers a treat in local artistry. They also offer art classes and garden talks to children and groups. Admission is free with a $2.00 suggested donation. The gardens are open from sunrise to sunset daily and the museum is open Monday thru Friday 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Saturday and Sunday 12:00 Noon to 4:00 PM. Parking is free at the south side of the building. Altogether a great place to take a break and experience local culture.
See You At The Beach
