Mary Livingston Ripley Garden

Ripley GardenCreated in 1988, the Ripley Garden is sandwiched into a narrow space between the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and the old Arts and Industries building. Its easy to miss if you aren’t aware it’s there. I miss not visiting it as often as I once was able to, as it has many nice features.

The garden has a fountain and planters and you can learn the names of the plants from the labels next to them. One thing I especially like are the park benches with brackets shaped like snakes. I thought I would share a few images to give you an idea of what its like.
