The Space

This garden is available for Evening ONLY.

Sweeping crape myrtle trees enclose a stone walkway to create this magnificent garden. This natural tunnel leads visitors to the popular toad fountain feature, “Toad Corner.”

Crape Myrtle Allee garden is stunning from late spring through winter, transitioning from lush green leaves to full blooms to a starkly beautiful holiday scene in the winter.

In the fall, winter and spring, we welcome various vendors to set up tables and sell their wares.

Opened to the public in 1994, Crape Myrtle Allee was originally funded by the Communities Foundation. Dedicated to John and Thelma Black by their daughter Peggy Braecklein. The Allee features a new lane of crape myrtle trees, which replaced the original trees planted by the DeGolyers. Paved with Pennsylvania bluestone, the Allee runs from the Paseo to Toad Corners. The Crape Myrtle Allee is a popular destination for photoshoots.
