We always love to visit this small lovely flower garden on a day like Mother's Day. On special days like that there may be music. Until recent years old Mr. McGill was on hand to exchange pleasantries. It's a fine place to stop and smell...More

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.

Our visit in late June coincided with some extremely hot and humid weather. There were a few roses in bloom but clearly the best had already happened earlier in the spring. The garden is something of a work in progress but is worth a look...More
