The Park Grounds
A pleasant walk around the perimeter of this place may take around 20 minutes.
If you get lost, just look for the green line. It follows the tram path, and leads you around the perimeter. Walk in either direction and you’ll eventually come to the Rose Garden near the entrance.
Starting as a mine in the early 1900’s, then moving to a landfill, this park transformed in April of 1961. 40,000 donated plants were put into the earth. Since then… my goodness.
