Thirty by fifty feet, The Townsend Garden is surrounded by a dark gray high board fence to the west and south; to the east a high stone wall; and a house to the north. A stone terrace occupies the northern quarter, a brick terrace the southern. The terraces are connected by a brick and stone walk which is crossed by a waterway in stone. Fountains lie at the center and both ends of the waterway. In the center, half of the garden is a low planted circle that is cut into quadrants by the walk and the waterway. To the sides are borderes filled with perennials and punctuated with old camellias ten to fifteen feet high.
Persons associated with the garden include: Guy Williams and Amy Mills (landscape architects, 1999).
