Located in the heart of Matter Park along the Mississinewa River, the Gardens of Matter Park are 6.3 acres of aesthetic beauty. The gardens have become a regional Hoosier garden showcase, which utilize Proven Winners plants, and have earned the prestigious designation as a Proven Winners Signature Garden. Beautiful water features, gardens, and garden structures grace the area. A butterfly garden and a children’s garden provide learning tools for the next generation. The gardens are the site of memories in the making, hosting weddings, reunions, graduations, concerts in the park, and other wonderful community events.
