Oakhurst Gardens at Minnetrista


Minnetrista is excited to share that Oakhurst Gardens are back open as a reflection space! Come relax, play, and explore.

Oakhurst, built in 1894, was the home of George, Frances, and Elisabeth Ball. This home was named Oakhurst to reflect its oak grove surroundings. Some garden features have survived one hundred plus years to remain much like they were when the family lived here. Please stay on the paths while visiting these gardens.

Visit the Orchard Garden during the summer months and enjoy a variety fruits and vegetables! Learn about different ways to build and maintain a garden space. Oakhurst Gardens are the perfect place to walk and explore. Experience peaceful shade from the oak trees, enjoy gazing at the garden beds filled with beautiful perennials, shrubs, and annuals, keep your eye out for intricate mosaics, and have fun in Betty’s Cabin. Oakhurst Gardens is currently open in a modified version as a meditative reflection space for our community. Even in the most solitary of times, we can become busy and distracted. We invite you to turn off the news feeds, social media updates, and email notifications to find a moment of rest in the shade of Oakhurst. Restrooms are available. Social distancing will be observed and Minnetrista staff will be wearing masks for your safety.
