Toilet Bowl Garden - Gone

I regret to inform you that the Toilet Bowl Garden of Grand Rapids doesn't exist anymore. It was a big disappointment for us, but with time I'm sure that we can heal our pain.

Toilet Bowl Gardens

On a corner on Road 10/3 from Hill City just outside the city of Grand Rapids, sit rows of toilets filled with blooming flowers tumbling from the tanks and overflowing the toilet bowls. These are very well known about in the city of Grand Rapids, though nothing is mentioned of them in tourist info publications. Toilet Bowl Gardens created quite a controversy in Grand Rapids, resulting in court action.
