Rain GArden

Rain Gardens help prevent storm water surface runoff so the water is absorbed by the soil. This demonstration garden is planted with native plants adapted to standing water for limited periods.

The Goldfish pond

Constructed in 1931, the pond has been the main attraction of the Garden ever since. Most visitors wonder where the fish go for the winter.  They stay in the pond, in a deep cave.
