CHILDRENS GARDEN

Location: South of Wee Saint's Daycare along the walking trail.

The St. Ansgar Garden Club held ground breaking cermonies for this garden in April, 2002. The land was provided by the city of St. Ansgar and the St. Ansgar American Legion presented the flag for garden. Garden Club members designed and established the gardens. The purpose of these gardens were to teach children the love of planting, nourishing and tending to their crops. Today the gardens are under the direction and financial support of the St. Ansgar Park, Beautification and Recreation Board. Volunteers help with the planting, weeding and tending to the beautiful gardens.
