  • This is a hidden gem on campus. We enjoy walking around and viewing the manicured garden. The flowers are beautiful - spring, summer and fall. Great place for wedding and graduation pictures!

  • Wow. This is not someplace that you’d just happen upon unless maybe you’re wandering through the UW campus, and even then it would be easy to miss. But it’s worth finding. Not as big as Olbrich but...

  • Was there for a photo session. We had the permit. It was lovely even in winter!
  • This lovely, quaint park was one of the highlights of our college tour of the Midwest. If you are visiting U. MINN or just Minneapolis in general and enjoy the peace and beauty of nature and gardens, this is a place for you. It is lovely!!!
