Founded in 1976, this public garden has beautified a once vacant lot with a seasonal array of flowers year-round (hellebores and snowdrops in winter, lilacs and lilies in summer). The flower beds and vegetable plots are maintained by volunteer members, though anyone can stop to look around or partake in annual events like April’s tulip festival or a fourth of July pot-luck picnic.
