Kirkwood Gardens, located in Holderness right next to the Squam Lake Science Center, offers beauty, animals and shade for adults and children. From blooming flowers to ancient maple trees, the mature landscaping is a delight each year in Spring, Summer or Fall. It is adjacent to the historic former Holderness Inn where you can find locally produced crafts and artwork at Squam Lakes Artisans or get something to eat in the Kirkwood Café.
Care has been taken to attract butterflies, bees and humming birds with flowers and plants in this multilevel garden. It is a peaceful stop in any day with the outdoor places for kids and beauty for all ages to appreciate.
The garden can be visited on its own or as part of your day at the science center. The Kirkwood Café is the only place to purchase food while at The Squam Lake Science Center. There is an exit from the science center paths to the garden. The Café offers sandwiches, ice cream and drinks.
