FEATURED STORY

Taiwan Garden at the Hude Community Center PlaygroundNewton Thanks the Taiwan Garden ROC Committee

The Taiwan Garden at the Hyde Community Centre Playground is in the height of spring glory! Since 2010 the members of the Taipei Economic Culture Center and Newton Parks and Recreation Department have nursed the creation of an authentic Chinese garden. The garden features the use of plant material indigenous to China and is further beautified with architectural elements singularly Chinese. Proud to be giving back to the City of Newton, Dr. Edward Kuo smiles as he enjoys the colorful spring display! See more photos.
