Comments:
The hardscaped features of the facility foreshadow great potential. There is a lovely fountain, a large shelter and wide gravel and brick paths. There are several good-sized perennial and annual beds and a bed devoted to roses and one with grasses and prairie plants. Many species of trees are planted, but they are not yet mature examples. There are also some shrubs. Some plants are labeled. A row of artfully placed, enormous stones is an eye-catching feature of this site.
