Visit the former Gold Coast estate of the W.R. Coe family. This National Register property has over 400 acres of rolling lawns, gardens, woodlands, and nature walks. The Camellia Greenhouse displays the largest collection of camellias in the northeast, and the Main Greenhouse has extensive collections of hibiscus, orchids, succulents, and seasonal displays.

Coe Hall is the Tudor Revival residence of the Coe family and is open for guided tours from April to September. Guests sample the formal lifestyle of the 1920s and see stunning craftsmanship and impressive collections of furnishings, paintings, stained glass, and decorative arts. In addition to the mansion, visitors will experience a wide variety of gardens, specimen plantings, and charming outbuildings that make Planting Fields truly unique.

The Coes used the talents of the Olmsted Brothers of Brookline, Massachusetts, to create an English park setting. Guided tours of the grounds are available and the park welcomes group tours. A wide variety of special events and courses are offered year-round. Mountain bikes are not permitted on park trails.
