Matter park has been around forever. In recent years, emphasis has been on making the park more beautiful and It is working. If you are in the area any time spring - fall be sure to visit the gardens at Matter Park. Small, but gorgeous!

When in Marion, Indiana & Grant County, do not miss a drive through historic Matter Park. A very beautiful place right next to the Mississinewa River. Grab A sack lunch and get away for awhile.

The work that has gone into Matter Park is amazing for this small town. The Garden house and Gardens are simply beautiful! It seems every weekend there is a wedding schedule there which is perfect for the surroundings!

We decided to visit the park the day we arrived for a weekend conference. We're so glad we did. The sculptures were cute and the park was setting up with Christmas lights. I'm sure it was beautiful at night.
