The Enchanted Garden by Albert Glade – Chico, CA
The Enchanted Garden, Chico (1965–75)
by Albert Glade (1887–1976)

Albert Glade came to the United States from Germany at age 20. He created his first garden in Los Angeles during the 1920s; he started his fourth garden, the Enchanted Garden, in Chico, California, in 1965. Over a ten-year period, Glade created an intense, richly decorated series of paths featuring concrete walls decorated with shells, shiny objects, plastic bits, and ceramic figurines.

The garden no longer exists, and nothing is known of Glade’s last days.
