Explore the Landscape

January 11 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until February 28, 2023

The 26-acre landscape highlights a variety of experiences to enjoy throughout the year! Free and open to the public seven days a week for a majority of the year, visiting the grounds offers the perfect way to immerse yourself in a historic country estate in the heart of Cedar Rapids. Stroll through the gardens, picnic on the lawn, birdwatch on a woodland path near the pond, examine the architecture of the mansion and servants’ village, discover the multi-stage geocache, or take in the history of the site with interpretative panels scattered across the grounds. Check out the new History Ungated QR code tour by scanning the codes on signs throughout the estate! Don’t forget to take a selfie (or two) and tag us on social media!
