Bruce's Garden

This is one graphic garden.

A beloved community haven is making efforts to increase cultural programming while spotlighting local artists.

From May through October, Bruce’s Garden in Inwood hosts “Gallery in the Gazebo,” a program that rotates temporary installations from Inwood-based artists at the garden’s wooden gazebo.

“The gazebo is now serving as an artist’s salon,” remarked Nadema Agard, a garden volunteer and visual artist who is curating the series.

Bruce’s Garden, situated in Isham Park, honors the memory of Bruce Reynolds, a Port Authority police officer killed on September 11, 2001.

The garden was created out of a trash-filled dirt lot in 1970, and has served as a community gathering place ever since.
