Gardens & Grounds
The Cathedral Close, the 59 acres surrounding the Cathedral, provide a beautiful sanctuary year-round. The grounds consist of cultivated gardens, including the Bishop’s Garden; the Olmsted Woods, an oak and beech forest; manicured lawns; a prayer path; and the landscaped grounds and athletic fields of the Cathedral schools.
All Hallows Guild was founded in 1916 to maintain and beautify the Cathedral’s gardens and grounds. The Guild, working closely with the Cathedral’s horticultural staff, preserves and beautifies this historic landscape. The Guild spearheads fundraising and educational events throughout the year.
