The Cleveland Cultural Gardens
Cleveland, Ohio USA
Park in Cleveland is home to the Cleveland Cultural Gardens.
28 nationalities (or so) have gardens. It's one of the best
kept and cool underground entities in the Cleveland area.
AZooNY recommends a walking tour...
Lithuanian Cultural Garden
One of the striking observations about all of these gardens
is how many of them have fountains... that work!
Many, like the Slovenian, have statues or the remembrance of
statues that once stood. Not that the gardens are run down
by any means... If anything, they suffer from a lack of
people visiting them.
What's fun is to park your car on East 72nd street and walk/hike
the area. You can bike there also, but walking will give you the best opportunity for exploration of the many nooks and crannies that abound.
The Italian garden area is very large, and very
well done with two major fountains.
Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko ponders the world from AZooNY hat's point of view.
Why it's spelled this way, we have no idea. Lot's of yellow
flowers though, that's for sure...
British Cultural Garden
A beautiful British Day at the Park... Oh, except it's in Ohio and accross the pond fromt he real place:-).
Shakespeare would be so proud. He probably never had a hat like this one :-)
Chinese Cultural Garden
Exploring the gardens is somewhat like an architectural hunt. You'll uncover many treasures long forgotten. Paths that few tack, steps leading to mysterious things, and a bit of vandalism that has occurred to some.
