Smith Memorial Gardens is located on less than one acre at the corner of Oakwood Avenue and Walnut Lane. Smith Gardens boasts one of the “finest tiny public gardens in Ohio. It’s like a secret treasure on an ordinary side street.” – Ohio Magazine, April, 1996. Various plants and flowers attract birds, small creatures and butterflies for the public’s enjoyment. Blanket concerts and story hour are held once a month during the summer months. The gardens also include a garden house which can be scheduled for activities such as the Perennial Sale, which is held in April of each year.

Weddings, tours and small parties can be arranged. The public is invited to visit during all seasons, the gardens are open to the public during daylight hours, seven days a weeks.
