This garden is an excellent example of multiple use of a public property. The property has been a source of hydraulic energy and drinking water for the City of Elkhart since the mid-1800s and therefore has a protected status. The idea of the garden was conceived in 2002. Construction began in 2006 and is ongoing but for a relatively new and small garden it’s very nice.
The paths are a combination of concrete, porous asphalt, and paver stone and brick. Some of the paver stone is very bumpy but overall the garden is accessible.
