Green Animals Topiary opens on Friday

PORTSMOUTH, R.I (WLNE) – The Green Animals Topiary Garden along Narragansett Bay is set to open daily to the public beginning Friday, April 16.

The historic property has more than 80 boxwood, privet and yew plants shaped like animals and other decorative forms.

Green Animals will join Marble House in Newport as tours open up for the two Preservation Society of Newport County properties.

Residents should take note that other schedule changes are coming in May.

“We believe Green Animals will be a popular place to visit, as it was last summer and fall, because people are still looking for outdoor activities during the pandemic,” said Trudy Coxe, CEO and Executive Director of the Preservation Society.

“And once again it will be part of our ‘Stroll the Gardens and Grounds’ ticket, which we introduced last year to allow people to enjoy the landscapes at all of our properties that are open”, she continued.”

This outdoors-only event costs $18 for adults and $8 for children, and will be available at

Green Animals is the oldest and most northern topiary garden in the Country.
