are four terraces running north and south on either side of the Court
of Lilies and the Court of Cypresses. They were erected not only to form
these retired courts and provide easy passageways from one building to
another, but also to furnish elevated resting-places as points of vantage
from which the public might view the illuminations and fountain effects.
They were inspired by the famous architectural treatment of the lake at
the Parc Monceau, Paris. The row of gaines, executed by Professor L. Amateis,
which bear the trellis, is, however, a new feature.
