The Ruin Garden
The Ruin Garden, completed in 2019, is located in the former gatehouse by the Old Croton Aqueduct entrance to the gardens. The Untermyer Gardens Conservancy had its masonry restored and cleaned, the lion and unicorn sculptures restored including commissioning a new head for the unicorn. An old root cellar has been converted to a grotto with a fountain. Inside and around the former gatehouse are plantings that evoke a feeling of being in a ruined and abandoned house.
