Bed 31 is a long, narrow bed that borders the brick walking path and the rocky boulder field that edges Lake Nipissing. It is located directly across from the railway underpass to downtown.

Bed # 50 – Puppy Willows (Team gardens on Thursday at 9 am)

Near the far east end, you will find the Puppy Willows. This team is aptly named as the bed contains Arctic Willows and dogwoods.

Blanket flowers, daisies, wholly thyme and orange daylilies are among the plants that thrive.

Bed 52 is the last garden along the waterfront. This bed provides a grand view of the lake and also provides the opportunity to take a refreshing swim in the lake after gardening!
