This is a wonderful park. Beautiful flowers, peaceful waterfalls. We stumbled upon it during a walk through the neighborhood. My daughter especially loved the origami sculpture that had directions for making an origami crane.

Always a hit, glorious in season and a hidden gem before or after the flowers have faded. A delightful stroll thru the garden plots and a photo takers dream spot. Open grass nearby for the kids to run around too!

The is a beautiful, peaceful, garden near the shore of Lake Harriet. Perfect stop on a bike trip, or just a drive around the lakes.
