“Solitude in city”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Monk's Garden is developing botanical garden in Wausau WI. It is located in a beautyful setting on the north side of the city. It provides the opportunity to enjoy a natural environment that is being developed into a themed natural preserve. It has graded and / or mowed walking paths that due to their flatness are available to all and make for easy walking. It's not yet well known so it provides a quiet place to take a very pleasant stroll. Try it I am certain you will like it.
