With its varied perennials and annuals, Longfellow Gardens provides a picturesque backdrop for weddings and other ceremonies. The formal garden, featuring a pergola, graces the top of the land bridge, providing a stunning view of the downtown skyline.
A gentle slope of prairie flowers and grasses provides a transition between the ''wild'' creek's edge and the land bridge's sedate beauty.
