While enjoying the beauty and peace of the environment in our Montgomery Botanical Gardens today, we may forget what this particular part of Oak Park looked like prior to 2017 when volunteers began clearing and planting Phase I of the Southern Garden.
The entrance in 2017 and in 2022 illustrates a remarkable improvement.
The location now is home to the Daylily Display Garden then and now.
It is rewarding to review where we were and how far we have come. This perspective will help guide us in our future plans for the development of the gardens.
