Flanders Mansion, a 15 room Tudor Revival mansion covered with ivy, is situated in Carmel-by-the-Sea’s largest park, the Mission Trail Nature Preserve and is one of only two properties in Carmel to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The park contains five trails-Flanders, Doolittle, Willow, Mesa and Serra. These trails were once used by the Padres to travel from the Carmel Mission to Monterey. The park is also home to the Lester Rowntree Native Plant Garden. The Flanders Foundation is an organization that raises funds through contributions, grants and gifts to help maintain and operate the property. There has been much debate over whether the city will sell or lease the mansion.
