Sherwood Gardens are a beautiful destination year-round but visiting the gardens at the end of April or the beginning of May is a truly dream-like experience. Imagine the sight of 80,000 tulips, hundreds of azaleas, mature dogwood, and flowering cherries in full bloom, a blaze of colors and fragrances. This spectacular display is an annual event at Sherwood Gardens.
Local petroleum pioneer and conservationist John W. Sherwood, an avid gardener who planted many of the mature trees and plants we can enjoy today, founded the garden in the 1920’s. He began by planting the tulips he brought from the Netherlands, starting what would later become the most famous tulip garden in North America. Sherwood Gardens is part of the Guilford Residential community and is managed by the Guilford Association. Access to the gardens is free.
