“Worth finding.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is a small but lush garden of local flowers and plants, done in memory of Mrs. Walsh, the founder's grandmother, I believe. Although we passed it the first time, we were glad we went back. No admission fee, a very peaceful place and names and descriptions of all the plants. The sculpture near the waterfall is kind of surprising as it's life-size and looks very natural in its place. A lot of love went into the creation of this attraction.

“a peaceful quiet haven”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We saw a brochure for this garden in our campground, (and there is a geocache there) so we went to find it. We looked and looked over days and couldn't find the garden! When we finally saw it, the gate was inconspicuous and the trees were overgrown so it kind of looked hidden. It is across the street from Tregent Park and there are places to park right next to the gate. When we went inside, no one was there and it looked quiet and overgrown. There were little signs everywhere saying what the different flowers, plants, and herbs were, and there were walking paths, and a pond with a waterfall and a statue of a boy reading next to the water. The inside of the garden felt very peaceful and I wondered if it is overgrown from lack of funds or care. I wish more people would go there so they can bring it more to life, but it is a lovely haven to sit in and look at the water
