|Warsaw’s Central Park, near the southern shore of Center Lake, was completed in 1995. Local residents Robert and Roma Maish loved flowers and flower gardens, and they had a vision …. to build a perennial garden that everyone could enjoy.
So through the Kosciusko County Community Foundation, the Maishes established an endowment to plan, develop, and perpetually maintain a one-third acre flower garden on the northeast corner of Central Park alongside N. Detroit Street. This floral display was named “The Gardens of Central Park.”
Each plant was planned and designed for each bed. The “beauty” of a perennial garden is that at any particular time of the growing season, one type of a perennial is in bloom while another one is at the end of its season. There is always something new to see, and it has been referred to as “a treasure of living beauty.”
