Attraction Information

Open for one day a year only, the spectacular & genius Garden of Cosmic Speculation, is a must visit in 2022! The garden showcases sculptures and landscapes inspired by natural phenomenons like the Big Bang, twisting DNA helixes, black holes and geometric fractals.

The 30 acre garden is inspired by nature and designed to stimulate the human senses (including a sense of humour). Journey through the story of the universe in 40 major areas of the garden, such as the Quark Walk, where you will uncover the smallest blocks of matter and a series of landforms and lakes display fractal geometry. Stand on the Black Hole Terrace and see the distortion of space and time, caused by a black hole … Creep to the edges of the Fractal pond, where snail-like curves intersect with water. With gardens, bridges, landforms, sculpture, terraces, fences and architectural works to explore, you will never be bored! Did you know the garden was created with the help of actual scientists?

This fun and funky landscape is perfect to take all family members too, with so many areas for kids to run around and play in, lots of instagrammable views for the teens to capture, and a long and peaceful walk for parents. Spark your sci-fi imaginations and book your space today!
