The Central Memorial Garden was established in September, 2007. It was created by and is maintained by a group of Master Gardeners and volunteers. The vision of the garden was a garden of beauty and tradition in memory of the families of Central. Plants may be donated in the name of a loved one. Contact the web master for information.

Below are some photos that try to capture some of the beauty of the garden.
