Maple Rock Gardens is a 30-acre estate garden containing multiple themed garden rooms, one of the largest garden Railroads in Northern California and almost 4 acres of bountiful farm lands. Open for private tours during a portion of the year guests will enjoy meandering paths leading to each of the garden rooms ranging from Japanese style settings to a formal English garden room full of fragrant and delicate blooms. Each area contains unique plant life such as peonies, ferns, dogwoods and iris.
Water features both tall and wide and many hidden treasures can also been seen around every turn. And of course, the garden’s namesake: beautiful Japanese Maples. One of the most recent additions to the property is the farm which yields produce and plants year round for both the High Hand Conservatory and Nursery. Colorful and unique vegetables are produced for the High Hand Conservatory Restaurant inspiring fresh seasonal menu options and creating a colorful culinary experience for both your eyes and your taste buds. Many plants are started from seed on the farm at Maple Rock, carefully planted by hand in the rich soil of Placer County and made available for sale upon maturity at the High Hand Nursery. We invite you to schedule a tour or plan on visiting during one of our special events planned each year where each season brings special charms to the gardens with color, motion and sound.
