8. There are Pear, Plum and Fig Trees in the Garden

When Allan Reiver began to transform the abandoned lot on Elizabeth Street into a flourishing garden, one of the first things he planted was a pair of Bradford pear trees. The two trees on the main lawn don’t produce any fruit, but the do spring beautiful white blossoms in the spring that float through the air in the wind.

Other notable trees in the garden include a fig tree planted by Joseph Reiver and his mother. Visitors are welcome, and encouraged, to pick the figs for themselves as the tree produces so many they weigh down the branches. Another fruit-bearing tree you can find in the garden is a plum tree.
