Kienzle Overlook

This overlook, located just off a busy campus road, has high visibility. The site features panoramic views of Cornell Botanic Gardens’ 11 theme gardens. The planting features dwarf conifers, both on the site and within the stone-enclosed raised beds. It is one of several sites scattered around Cornell Botanic Gardens that make up our conifer collection.  Conifers are valuable for providing shade, wind protection, and visual enhancement of existing plantings.
