If you enjoy roses and a relaxing stroll, this is for you. Although not very large, it's very pretty and fun to relax and take in the sights, smells, and sounds.

This old coal yard was transformed into a beautiful garden by Mr McGill and donated to the city. The Roses are wonderful, as well as all the other plants in the garden. My wife and I were married here in May 2009.
