Lown Memorial Garden -- College Hill Park in the City of Poughkeepsie

The Lown Memorial Garden is a wonderful historic rock garden on the east side of College Hill Park in the City of Poughkeepsie. In 2013 a portion of the garden was restored as a beautiful pollinator garden. Join the Revive College Hill Park Coalition, the Student Conservation Association (SCA) and the Environmental Cooperative on May 4th, as we complete the restoration of this Local Historic Landmark.

We will be working with SCA to reset the unique and historic rocks that are located in the garden, remove invasive species and prepare the flower beds for planting in June. Raindate is May 5th.
