Phillips Park Sunken Garden
The Sunken Garden is the only formal public garden in Aurora and lies within the city’s 325-acre Phillips Park; park superintendent Ray Moses designed it in the 1930s. It features breathtaking seasonal flower displays, such as the 10,000 tulips that bloom in April and May. Stroll the paved multi-level walkways, stopping at the garden’s four corners to study the Greek statues representing the four seasons. Relax on a concrete bench overlooking the three-tiered bubbling fountain in the center of the garden. This picturesque garden is a popular location for wedding and special occasion photography.
