The Eklund Garden is a garden planted with species native to Connecticut and maintained by volunteers with support by the Conservation Commission and the Iroquois Gas Transmission Company. It is located at 10 Oak Valley Road off Nells Rock Road. It is on city open space property once owned by Herman and Lillian Eklund, who built a rustic cabin there in the 1930s. The Eklund Garden is open to the public from dawn to dusk. Visitors must keep dogs on a short leash to prevent damage to the plants. Information about the Eklund Garden may be found on the Conservation Commission Web site.
