Directions to the Garden
From Meadville heading west on Park Ave/Conneaut Lake Road/322 West: Cross the Smock Highway bridge, and continue past Giant Eagle to the stop light (Sheetz is on the left). Turn left onto Mercer Pike/ Route 102. Cross the bridge over I-79, pass Krider Rd on the right, and continue up the hill. As you go around the bend, pass a gravel road on the right. Take the next right hand gravel road to turn onto Ackerman Drive. Continue about ¼ mile down the road, and watch for two water tanks in the field to the left. Take the next left turn to the garden. Park along the road across from the table and tool storage shed.
