Innisfree Garden is an American nonprofit public garden in the Chinese style.
Located at 362 Tyrrel Road, Millbrook, New York, the 150-acre (61-hectare) garden has streams, waterfalls, terraces, retaining walls, rocks and plants based on principles of Chinese landscape design. Most of the plants are native, and rocks come from the local forest.
Tyrrel Lake (40 acres (16 hectares)) is a large, deep glacial lake from which water is pumped into a hillside reservoir, and thence to the garden's water features.
The garden was established between 1930 and 1960 as the private garden of Walter and Marion Beck, inspired by the garden of 8th-century Chinese poet and painter Wang Wei (王維) (698–761).
The garden is open Tuesday through Sunday, from May 7 to October 20; an admission fee is charged. ($6 on weekdays, $8 on weekends)
