The two RV Gypsies have been to Glencairn Gardens several times because family lives nearby. It has several beautifully landscaped ponds, gardens and walkways, which provide Karen Duquette with the opportunity to take many photographs. Several visits have been combined here. It is interesting to see the difference in colors due to the different seasons. There is NO admission fee for the general use of the garden, however, some special events may require an admission fee, and there is usually plenty of parking on the streets.

As the two RV Gypsies walked around the other side of the pond shown above, they came to a fountain called "The Come-See-Me Festival Fountain" - a long tiered fountain. Photos are from several years at different times. It is fun to see the color changes in the trees, reflections, and such.

As the two RV Gypsies walked the short, brick path, they came to the top tier of the fountain (2018 photos).
