Miracle Garden was begun in 1983. It is a beautiful garden with a variety of plantings. A winding path leads visitors past a picnic table, benches, and ornamentals, and opens into a meeting area obscured from the street, making it a calm, cool respite on a hot summer day. The rear part of the garden also includes a gazebo/stage area, a tool shed, rainwater harvesting system, and plenty of seating.
