Centennial Parterre

On August 29, 1996 the Centennial Parterre garden was dedicated. The garden was a Centennial gift to the university from the Staff Association. The garden initially had 21 partitioned flower beds with 30,000 flowers in over 100 varieties, two rose gardens and two rock gardens. The garden is located south of the Harris pavilion on 200 South 1150 West.
