This is a place I enjoy visiting every 5 years or so. It is eclectic, quiet, easy to access & unique. Give it a try. Read the history of this garden & enjoy!

Small, a few interesting sculptures - mostly stones with carved scriptures. Address is 749 East 500 South - there's a sign on the fence.

It's a little hard to find because it's in the middle of a neighborhood. There is no dedicated parking for it, but you can find parking on the street. The sculptures were a little weird, but neat. It is definitely something different. The garden contains...More
