Charlevoix Public Library Civic Garden

The Charlevoix Public Library Civic Garden is located at 220 W. Clinton. The garden is on Mason Street.

Our garden at the Charlevoix Public Library enhances the landscape surrrounding the lovely Library sign on the brick wall along Mason Street.  The garden was established at this site in 2006 when the library moved to its present location. 

When the garden was designed, care was taken to incorporate tulip and daffodil bulbs that had been planted by Club members years ago at this site when the grounds were part of the Charlevoix schools.

The garden features a variety of perennials, which are situated directly beneath the Library signage.  Among these low-lying varieties are Lady's Mantle, Phlox, Day Lilies, Geraniums, Bee balm, Coneflowers, Chrysanthemums, Shasta Daisies, Hostas, Roses, and Lavender.  Splashy annuals also add color and texture early in the season.

More massive shrubbery, such as High-bush Cranberry, Spirea, and Hydrangea, frame the perennials and draw focus to their color and variety.  They also help conceal the service yard behind.

Our garden is maintained by eight Club members and is one of many gardens which grace the Library's landscape.  Visitors are encouraged to view the perennial garden on Mason Street, the large circle garden highlighting the main entrance, and the children's garden behind the wrought iron fence.
