These delicate flowers aren't just beautiful, they're also a testament to the park's history.  Aullwood Gardens began as the private haven of Marie Aull, who nurtured the land and its flora for decades. In 1977, she generously donated her garden and home to Five Rivers MetroParks, transforming it into the public treasure it is today.
