John P Murphy Foundation Gardens


The John P Murphy Foundation Gardens are located in the southwest corner of Public Square.


This area is on the west side of the KeyBank Promenade.


This cluster of garden beds features the following types of vegetation:


Eastern Redbud, Flowering Dogwood, Jelena Witch Hazel, Limelight Hydrangea, Mountain Hydrangea, Winterberry, Inkberry, Japanese Mahonia, Blue Wood Aster, Pennsylvania Sedge, Purple Lovegrass, Flowering Spurge, Tall Bearded Iris, Switchgrass, Obedient Plant, Christmas Fern, Dwarf Quilled Black-Eyed Susan, Great Burnet, Heart Leaved Skullcap, Solomon's Seal, Purple Coneflower, and Siberian Iris.



From this vantage point, you can see Rebol, on one side, and the main entrance to the iconic Terminal Tower.


Guests who are in The Square for our self-guided walking tour of the gardens should walk northeast around Rebol to see the splash pad that is the highlight of the Cleveland Foundation Centennial Plaza. The beautiful granite paver pathway below is known as the KeyBank Promenade.


Your next destination is known as the John Sherwin Family Perennial Gardens.


The vegetation around The Square was intentionally selected during the design process. (READ MORE)
