3530 Lorna Road

There’s something playful and mysterious about Aldridge Gardens. Formerly a private estate of the Aldridge family, the gardens are now open to the public throughout the week. Maybe it’s the numerous trails leading all on to their own paths, or the fantastical statues of rabbits and turtles spread throughout, or it could be the reflective lake in the center that gives Aldridge a mesmerizing effect. The best part? Admission is free.
