Such a beautiful place! My daughters and I really enjoyed it and would love to come again in cooler weather. Can’t believe it is free!

The Garden is beautiful, especially at dusk. It’s a must see and free attraction at Calhoun Seventh Day Adventist church. I was blessed to see it at the beginning and now to see all the different pieces is wonderful!

Behind the church, in a small wooded area, next to a stream, a group of dedicated and talented people is building something whimsical. Everywhere you turn there's something to catch the eye, whether it's the castles and little houses, or the flowers and other plants....More

This is a wonderful place for children and adults. It is filled with handmade castles and various structures all made by hand from tiny rocks. The setting is beautiful with flowers throughout. It is free and children love it.
