Lyndale Park and the Men’s and Women’s Garden Club of Minneapolis
August 15 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
This event was originally scheduled for August 9, but was rescheduled due to inclement weather.
Following the 1981 tornado through southwest Minneapolis, the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board refurbished the 1929 rock garden which is now the Peace Garden. The Men’s and Women’s Garden Club of Minneapolis (MWGCM) donated and planted trees and helped re-design the park’s arboretum. They continue to work with its native and mixed border gardens. Join us for a walking tour of these Lyndale Park gardens and features, with an emphasis on their histories.
Speakers include Kay Wolfe, with the MWGCM, JoAnn Blatchley, with the Friends of the Peace Garden, and Teresa Grant, Peace Garden Gardener.
Meet in the Lyndale Park Bird Sanctuary shelter, behind the Peace Garden/Bird Sanctuary parking lot. Bring a portable chair or stool if you would like to sit during parts of the tour.
