Lilacs and many other shrubs are in bloom throughout the Park. The first peonies and daylilies are blooming with many more ready to open.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the Park with purchases of plants or items from the Gift Shop. We just have a few dahlias left, many daylilies and a few other assorted perennials.
We are always looking for some extra hands to help maintain the Park - for information on volunteering at the Botanic Park, please visit Volunteer Opportunities
