The gardens are very well planned and maintained by the garden club of Marion and the city. The statues they have displayed are very attractive. It is iike an oasis in the middle of an otherwise drab city.

Great little playground for the kids and plenty of photo opps. If you are there during the late spring through early fall, the butterflies won't dissapoint. The butterfly garden is one of the best in the nation.

A beautiful and well thought out garden. Most heart warming, a spot to attract Monarch Butterflies. It works, saw several our visit. Anyone over 60 will remember when Monarchs were plentiful. Good to see there are still a few.
