The Shakespeare garden is a themed garden that cultivates all of the 175 plants mentioned in the works of William Shakespeare.
The park also managed to acquire a statue of Shakespeare that still resides in the garden. Members got the mayor of Stratford-Upon-Avon in England to donate a bust of the worldâ€™s most influential dramatist to stand watch over the grounds.
The cast by George Bullock dating to 1814 was taken from the one carved in the 17th century for the Stratford-Upon-Avon Church. A bronze copy was made, and it presides over the garden to this day. But to most visitors, the statue remains a mystery. Since around 1950, it has lived its days behind padlocked green metal doors, protected from the prying hands of vandals.
