Meinders Gardens Terrace dedicated

This beautiful space overlooking the east lower lake and Crystal Bridge, is designed to hold approximately 100 in theater style seating and is the ideal setting for picnics or dinners in the garden. With a stone path-way, cedar constructed trellis and boulder font stone, the Meinders Garden Terrace is the perfect atmosphere for a variety of occasions including corporate gather-ings, birthday parties, weddings and much more.

The Myriad Gardens Foundation received a major grant award of $400,000 from Herman and LaDonna Meinders/Meinders Foundation.

Funds were used to complete the planting plan for the Meinders Garden, which occupies the northeast corner of the Myriad Botanical Gardens, and serves as an entrance to the Gardens from the intersection of Sheridan and Robinson Avenues. The Meinders Garden constitutes approximately 20% of the 17-acre Myriad Gardens. Exciting design enhancements planned for the Meinders Garden include a new terrace area for weddings and other events as well as a lovely, shady site for all to enjoy. Features include a rustic, wooden trellis and a charming stone fountain.
