MARIE BOWEN GARDENS. In 1967, the Raleigh Parish Garden Club selected as a club project a lovely, wooded area, located in the Walnut Hill neighborhood bounded by Arch Street, Arch Circle, and Fairfax Street. Azaleas, flowering trees, camellias, rhododendrons and other plants compatible with a naturalized setting are featured. Mrs. Bowen donated many plants to this site. During her lifetime, she maintained the Fairfax side of the garden, donating her time and hard work to the project. Upon her death in 1979, the city council allowed the park to be named The Marie Bowen Garden as a tribute to this dedicated gardener. Since 1979 Raleigh Parish has continually added plant specimens and has installed and maintained a sprinkler system. Also the Boy Scouts, with the club's financial assistance, constructed a Chippendale bridge and erected a stone waterway to control erosion. Recently the wildflower garden has been re-established and plantings identified.
