Enter a secluded world of designed Japanese elegance in this garden of exotic and native plantings that encircle a serene pond.
Nestled on the island outpost of Chappaquiddick, Mytoi (pronounced “my toy”) is an intimate Japanese-style garden flourishing with both native flora and exotic plants, offering visitors a destination for quiet contemplation. Sheltered by a lovely pine grove, the preserve includes a small pond and island-habitat for turtles, frogs, and goldfish-non-native and native flowers and plants, and a trail leading toward Poucha Pond and the salt marsh.
Members: FREE, Nonmembers: $5
Admission paid at Mytoi, Dike Bridge, or Wasque provides visitor access to all three Chappaquiddick properties for that day.
Follow winding footpaths through a birch walk, camellia dell, stone garden, and hillside garden. A rustic shelter offers a broad view of the garden and a chance to become immersed in the meditative qualities of the landscape. Walking the easy, half-mile Salt Marsh Trail offers beautiful vistas of the salt marsh and the pond, and at Poucha Pond, you might even spy osprey fishing from the sky. Benches are located at designated spots along the trails.
