Blake's Garden At Garfield Park

The garden formerly known as The Children's Garden at Garfield Park renovation and renaming was born from a love that Blake had for Garfield Park.  Blake spent many fun filled days at the park as a child and then working for the park at various times while in high school and college.  It is now home to the gorgeous 'Divine Light' art by Kenzie Funk as well as 'Fran's Place', designed as a space for demonstrations and educational programs.


The BlakeStrong Bowell Fund support will ensure the garden's ongoing maintenance, programming and extended hours . This garden hopes to serve many children, students and families for years to come!
