About the garden: Ashford Annie Beck Garden has the feel of an open park space and offers benches for quiet reflection on busy days. This flower garden has envy inducing roses and many beautiful types of native plants that cater to butterflies and other pollinators.
This peaceful and inviting garden was started by the Ashford family who wanted to beautify the neighborhood and saw the opportunity that a demolished house presented. Through the years, the garden was cared for by the neighborhood and when the community lost a cherished garden leader, Annie Beck, the garden was renamed to memorialize her.
