Jaycee Lily Garden

Jaycee Parks’ lily garden is a treasure of heirloom varieties nestled in one of the prettiest natural areas inside the beltline.  Many, many varieties and a beautiful nature walk to go alongside.  The small creek travels over a couple of significant waterfalls and creates deep pools where large dace minnows live.  This park is being seriously threatened by kudzu, encroaching from the south into the upland mix of post oak and northern red oak.  The path that winds around the fairly steep hillside feeds right into a fascinating section of greenway – it follows directly behind some backyards and then follows Gardner up to the Rose Garden.
