Since opening in 2004, Cornerstone's Gardens has drawn international acclaim from publications such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Garden Design magazine. Newsweek states, "Cornerstone showcases the best in cutting-edge international landscape design," and the site is featured in "1001 Gardens to See Before you Die" as well as being named one of Sunset magazine's Top 10 Western Gardens for 2009.
The Gardens are open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for self-guided walking tours. It is strongly recommended that you review the information available about each installation in the garden section of this website to further enhance your visit to this unique site. Brief information about each garden and it's creator is also displayed on site, and a book is available at Zipper for $10. Admission to the Gardens is free.
To visit the Gardens, we recommend comfortable shoes and a hat; the tour is on foot through flat pathways with some seating available throughout the visit. Sonoma weather is generally bright and sunny, and occasionally windy.
Wheelchairs are not available.
