As you approach the garden you’ll notice a large Dutch windmill. Historically the windmill was built to serve as an irrigation system for getting water to nearby plants in the park. While the landmark is not actually in use today, it serves as a unique reminder of the garden’s origins and the beauty the flowers provide to the area.
Queen Wilhelmina Garden is named after a former queen of the Netherlands who donated the windmill to the park. She ruled the Netherlands for fifty years, and tulips were a symbol of peace. Once inside the historical garden grounds you’ll see everything from joggers, readers, writers, artists, and even weddings as you stroll past the colorful, gorgeous blooms. Garden visitors can eat at the Park Chalet Garden Restaurant.
