Beautiful, peaceful spot to walk and quiet your mind in the heart of the city. I love to get a coffee and come here to walk or sit and journal.

A lovely place to contemplate life. Fresh. Open. Abundant wildflowers. Seasonal attraction. Easy to find and great to experience. Not only is the natural world great but so are the man made structures.

Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden & Bird Sanctuary. There are signs at both gates to enter the garden stating this.
