Favorite place at Wildwood: I can’t choose just one favorite! Cabe Festival Theatre is a gorgeous and comfortable space for enjoying live performances, and the Asian Woodland Garden is peaceful, rejuvenating and inspiring.

When I need to relax, I...enjoy time with my two sons. I feel really lucky to be their mom!

Ira Grace

Facility and Rentals Manager

Hometown: Baton Rouge, LA

Favorite place at Wildwood: Asian Woodland Garden. It may be the most relaxing place in Wildwood, though that’s a tough contest.

When I need to relax, I... go listen to some live music, see a play or just sit back with some tea and a good book.

Favorite place at Wildwood: I like the top of Butler Hill looking down onto Swan Lake. There are always beautiful flowers surrounded by butterflies and birds.

Dr. Rachel Miller

Educational Programs Coordinator, Art in the Park Gallery Curator

Hometown: Little Rock, AR

Favorite place at Wildwood: Wild 40 Trail. I love to hike and the Wild 40 Trail provides a great opportunity to commune in nature, get some exercise, and not have to drive too far to do so!

When I need to relax, I... write, a long hike or bike ride, dinner with friends, and nothing beats a good book with a glass of wine.

Angela Collier

WAMA Curriculum Manager, Volunteer Coordinator

Hometown: Cedar Hill, TX

Favorite place at Wildwood: Butler Hill - I love how open the space is, but that it is still surrounded by trees and has a great view of Swan Lake!

When I need to relax, I... spend time singing, watch a funny movie, read a book, or go for a walk with my husband Daniel and my dog Piper.
