Tucked in the southeastern corner, you will find a stone stile, a fun way to access the Flower Garden.

Watch wildlife from the boardwalk over Houston Pond. Look for fish, frogs, snakes, and many insects, including dragonflies.
The sculptures were produced in the 1960s by Cornell undergraduate architecture students. Under the guidance of professor Jack Squier, these students learned first-hand about sculpture, design, and carpentry. They volunteered their own time and money toward the project, and participated in every aspect of the planning and construction of the sculptures. The sculptures were erected before the arboretum existed, and the location was very secluded and isolated from the main campus at the time.
