The garden side

The Carter Center grounds include a "35 acre wooded park, that contains a formal garden, wildflower meadow, cherry orchard and waterfalls, tucked between two lakes" (official website). In 1999 the Center received the centennial Medallion ward from the American Society of Landscape Architects. See this site for a plan of the Center.
