Title Orange Balustrade 1933
Description View of Orange Balustrade and Summer House. The wooden bridge can be seen as well as the Stream leading down to the Rock Waterfall. On the center path axis is the Sundial and the Marble Fountain in the foreground.

Notes: The Orange Balustrade was constructed around 1899 in the style of the Italian Villa Gardens.

The fountain was moved to the formal Rose Garden around the middle of the 20th century and returned to the garden in front of the Orange Balustrade in the 1990's during the restoration of the Orange Balustrade and the creation of the Pennock Flower Walk.
