The Dogwood Circle of the Lock Haven Garden Club was established in 1960, and maintains the gardens at the Triangle across from the Post Office and at the Civil War Monument in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania. The club meets monthly at members' homes to learn more about gardening, plants and flower arranging, and occasionally embarks on gardening related excursions. We schedule planting and clean up days throughout the growing season and every one has assigned weeks for weeding and maintenance.
We welcome new members! Email us below!
We thank the Clinton County Foundation for funding the care and maintenance of these City gardens.

Seasonal flowers in bright shades line the walkways. The dahlias were stunning!
