Peaceful, well-maintained Park with paved pathways winding around the 5 acre property. Enjoy multiple water features & waterfall with coy pond. I liked that all of the vegetation & tree variations were labeled. All 5 senses go to work & I can imagine how this place must look fully bloomed on a sunny day (cloudy morning today). There's also an old schoolhouse you can walk into, sit down or leave your mark on the chalkboards. Love this place!
Beautiful and tranquil, the perfect place to just walk or sit, and put your mind at ease.... or have a picnic! This gorgeous outdoor area also offers an educational benefit to botany students, or any green thumb enthusiast, as all the trees and shrubs are labeled. Another plus to this already free-to-public outdoor area is that it makes a great photo op for any occasion, complete with stone pathways, fountains, flowers, evergreens, a gazebo and even and old school house! Doggy mess bag/drop off stations are available at the entry to help maintain the garden's cleanliness.
