I love to visit this place. There's gardens everywhere, a greenhouse, giftshop, house tour, and duck pond. They sell plants in the greenhouse and all sorts of things in the giftshop. The hours are a bit strange though so it's hit and miss whether or not they will be open when you go. But the plantings are beautiful and always changing with the seasons. Many people have pictures taken here.

Kingwood Center is one of the best locations to take your family too while visiting Mansfield. It's very historical and has a LOT of ground to cover. Every plant is identified with its botannical name and Latin names as well for the purist. The house is a shrine to a philanthropist from an age gone by. You can borrow books from the library and brush up on your botany as well as buy select flowers and shrubs from their on-site greenhouses. Kingwood also offers walking trails and a maintained pond with swans and ducks. If you can only come once, come in the Spring when the tulips are out! Oh my GOD! It is a visual feast. They plant roughly 50,000 tulip bulbs that come up and it's absolutely gorgeus!

PROS: Beautiful setting and inexpensive day out with the family
CONS: Tours are usually during 9-5 during the weekdays when most of us are work

Built in 1926, Kingwood center is 47 acres of house and gardens open to the public. It is a bequest of Mr. Charles King, who left it to the city of Mansfield.

Besides the house, which is of interest for its architectural and historical viewpoint, the gardens and the greenhouse is what draws the public year round.

The gardens are beautifully laid out, rose gardens, annuals, perennials, tree lined walks and fountains. There is a lovely common building where local events are held, such as flower shows and concerts. And the greenhouse, besides having some unique and unusual plants, hold several plant sales each year that benefit the foundation.

Weddings are common on the grounds, and there is a large bird pond which attracts children wanting to feed the ducks or swans. There are also peacocks and guinea hens running around loose. And, of course, there is the wonderful smelling herb gardens on the terrace outside the main house.

There are two main parking lots, offering lots of parking and a gift shop is at the main house.

Do make it a point of stopping in to this locally historical house and well maintained and peaceful gardens. A lovely place to spend a Sunday afternoon.

PROS: Lovely gardens, historical house
CONS: none
