You can bike, walk, take the bus or drive to this wonderful little oasis just west of Westboro. The volunteers who maintain the garden are always willing to share tips and ideas with you. And any time of day is lovely for a visit. Little kids also enjoy figuring out all the plants.

Imaginative plantings maintained by volunteers is a nice place to visit and enjoy. It is also frequented by the birds to add another dimension of enjoyment. It is a frequent setting for graduation and wedding photos.

A beautiful flower garden owned by the NCC but tended by volunteers. At the end of Westboro it is a quiet respite in a trendy district.
