Visitor Tips and News About Garden Station Art Park
Garden Station is an art park and community garden created by volunteers, donations and scrounged materials. The Dayton Circus Creative Collective started it in 2008.
There are murals and sculptures by local artists, including a giant dream catcher and a giant easel that has different works rotated on it (and also occasionally serves as a movie screen).
Buildings are built using sustainable techniques, including a straw bale garden shed with a green roof and bottle wall and a greenhouse made of pop bottles. During the garden season there is live music on the first Friday of every month. Other regular events include the Really Really Free Market.[lisa, 11/26/2010]
