The folks behind Ohio. Find It Here, the state’s online tourism portal, routinely feature inspirational travel ideas from across the Buckeye State.

This month, they traveled to Mansfield.

“Spend a Day at Kingwood Center Gardens” is a full-length introduction to all things Kingwood. The staff-written piece begins this way:

“As you pass through the majestic wrought iron gates and follow the winding, tree-lined road into Kingwood Center Gardens, you may feel as though you’re entering the grounds of a castle. The illusion continues as you crest the hill and catch a glimpse of the stately brick mansion and enchanting gardens. It may feel impossible that just a few seconds ago you were on a busy road in Mansfield, Ohio, but that’s just part of the charm of this 47-acre horticulture wonderland.”

To present the venue to those who have not been there before, the article talks about component parts of the Kingwood Center experience. Those include:

In Full Bloom – A review of what to expect from gardens and greenhouses.

Around Every Corner – Roaming peacocks, the Storybook Trail, etc.

Grab a Bite to Eat – The Gateway Cafe

Kingwood’s Roots – Tours of Kingwood Hall, the home of Charles Kelley King

Grow Your Own – Opportunities to take a bit of Kingwood home with you

The article concludes with a suggestion of taking in the nearby B&O Trail, the sights and attractions in downtown Mansfield, and the Ohio Bird Sanctuary.
