The Floral Clock
Elegant Colors of the Clock
The large clock received from the Bulova Watch Company in 1966 was a duplicate of the famous Bulova Floral Clock at Berne, Switzerland. It was replaced the summer of 2005 with a new clock from St. Louis, Missouri. The Floral Clock, 18 feet in diameter, is a popular attraction at the International Peace Garden, and displays a unique floral design each year. The number of plants on the clock can range from 2,000 to 5,000, depending on the type of plant and design on the face of the clock.Typically the first week in June, 80,000 flowers are planted at the Peace Garden, and best viewed full bloom from mid-July through August. However, the park has its own distinctive beauty all year around.
Enjoy formal gardens, the unique diversity and texture of The Conservatory or just become one with Nature.
Outdoor games, scavenger hunts and geocaching are just a few of the ways families can spend time together enjoy the Peace Garden.
The acres of the garden beg to be explored on bike or on foot. Better yet, grab a kayak and float.
