What's in Bloom
The end of May is a delightful time to be in Carl Schurz Park. The colors dazzle, the endless array of beautiful blooms is often breathtaking and everything feels fresh and new.
Here are some highlights of our Park this week.

Lastly, a surprise. Abelias have been in our Park since the mid 1930’s, but the Fragrant Abelia is new to us. There is one under the London Plane tree in the Peter Pan Circle and another at the east end of Polly Gordon Walk on the north side, almost at the center line of the Hockey Court. The fragrance will startle you.
