Kingwood Center Gardens


  The 47 acre Kingwood estate with it’s red brick mansion was the home of Charles Kelley King, president Ohio Brass Company.  He left the estate to a private foundation with the stipulation that it be open to the public. 

The gardens are beautifully maintained and colorful with many themed gardens and a large greenhouse.



The brick paths are in excellent condition. Rolling around is very easy but the property has a gentle rise so wheelchair users may need to have help. Most of the gardens are accessible, however, the historic garden is a series of levels with steps. It’s possible to see the plantings on most of the levels from the paved paths. We did not visit the mansion which is opened for one tour a day on Saturday and Sunday only.

  The parking lot is large enough for any RV.   Gardens
