Long Description:
The day we visited is was a bright sunny day and this wonderful garden with all the flowers in bloom is impressive.

The garden is circular in design with a raised flower bed made of natural stone. Two smaller flower beds extend on both sides at ground level.

The Rotary of Salmon Arm made this garden possible and a plaque was installed commemorating the District 5060 Conference where students from around the world joined friends from Canada.
