Charley Creek Gardens are approximately 6 1/2 acres located in the city of Wabash, Indiana complete with a Meadow of wild flowers and plants native to Indiana, Hedge Maize, 30′-0″ tall 4-tiered Waterfall, Shade Garden and Conservatory. The Conservatory is approximately 1,000 square feet and stands about 14′-6″ tall with a faceted end facing North Miami Street.
