The garden's signature feature is a small pond with an island that is reached by walking over an arched footbridge. Winding footpaths take visitors through birch groves, a dell of camellia and a rock garden. A rustic shelter offers broad views of the garden and a chance to become immersed in the meditative qualities of the landscape.
The Trustees of Reservations acquired the property in 1976 as a gift from the late Mrs. Mary Wakeman and extended it in 1981. In 1991, Hurricane Bob left the garden a tangle of uprooted trees and shrubs. Mytoi was redesigned and restored with mixed plantings of native and exotic trees and shrubs.
