ABOUT THE PARK
Marvin's Garden is a quiet oasis across the street from Bergen Place Park in Ballard. Its five benches on a stone-embedded concrete patio are surrounded by cedar trees, shrubbery, and flowers in planters. It is also the site of the red brick Ballard Centennial Bell Tower, created to hold the old Ballard City Hall bell at the site where the City Hall stood, and to mark the Ballard Avenue Historic District. Note the inlaid compass in the floor of the bell tower.Acreage: 0.1
No real relation to Monopoly's Marvin Gardens, Marvin's Garden was named for the late town character Marvin Sjoberg.
