Mexican Cultural Garden Planning Meeting
Hispanic Alliance Building in Cleveland
October 23,2019

A group of community leaders and volunteers gathered in the Hispanic Alliance Building on Wednesday October 23, 2019 to begin the process of establishing a Mexican Cultural Garden.

The Cleveland Cultural Gardens, founded in 1916, are unique to the world. They represent the diversity and multiculturalism that is Cleveland, and bring life to the Gardens’ mission of “peace through mutual understanding.” Some 32 dedicated gardens, designed and cultivated by distinct cultural or nationality groups, adorn the drive along Martin Luther King Boulevard and East Boulevard in Rockefeller Park.
