Established in 1929, by Edward W. Bok as a gift
to the American people, the 50-acre garden was
designed by noted landscape architect Frederick
Law Olmsted Jr. to be a contemplative and informal
woodland setting. Acres of ferns, palms, oaks and
pines fashion a lush backdrop of flowering foliage
and the spectacular seasonal color of azaleas,
camellias and magnolias showcase an ever-changing
work of art.

The 205-foot marble and coquina Singing Tower
is the focal point of the gardens with tile mosaics,
animal carvings and custom iron-work. Dedicated by
President Calvin Coolidge and listed as a National
Historic Landmark, carillon music is played daily.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places
and acquired in 1970, Pinewood Estate and gardens
is one of the finest examples of Mediterranean-style
architecture in the Southeast.

Today, this is a place to enjoy Bok’s love of beauty, nature and music. Programs and events are offered throughout the year to learners of all ages. Discover the story of Edward W. Bok and the Gardens in the Visitor Center historical museum.
