This 16 acre park opened on October 27, 2007 and was dedicated to the late Jean Bruhn, a former Parks & Recreation Advisory Board member. Jean's vision was to develop a sensory garden that fosters an appreciation of nature, landscaping, preserving our natural resources and promoting environmental education through a natural interpretation and use of all our senses. Upon entering the Garden, you will be transported into a serenely beautiful environment.

Some of the unique features you will find at the Park:Boy in Garden

  • Native and native-adapted plants
  • A small waterfall facing a large central planting area
  • Restrooms
  • Several Mini-Pavillions located throughout the Park

The Park is open from dawn to dusk daily.
