The Sunken Gardens was constructed
in 1930 as a WPA project for unemployed
men during the Great Depression.

The garden has two reflecting pools and
a cascading waterfall.

It features an annual floral display of
more than 30,000 individual plants
which is redesigned each year to suit
a new theme.

Completed in 2005, a major renovation
of the garden included two new statues
and the entry pavilion with its metal
dome representing the four seasons of
the city’s skyline.
