The RCSF Tuscan Garden will transport you straight into the heart of Italy.
Modeled after the exquisite Villa Gamberaia in Florence, you’ll find landscaped terraces, water fountains, topiary, elegant stonework, and period plantings–including olive and lemon trees–all in a early Renaissance architectural layout.
***The RCSF Tuscan Garden will be closed from March 2019 through approximately the end of April 2019. We are working on replacing the floor tiles and the decorative concrete edging to restore the garden back to its original splendor.***
The enclosed Lemon House is used for special events in the spring, summer, and autumn, and houses tropical plants for overwintering in the off-season.
The green amphitheater features a statue of Roman fertility goddess Ceres, and is perfect for staging outdoor public programs and private functions, from Lincoln Center’s Silent Disco to Snug Harbor’s 2017 Neptune Ball to dozens of weddings every year.
Admission is free of charge. The Richmond County Savings Foundation was the lead sponsor of the RCSF Tuscan Garden, which was completed in 2010.
