These magnificent irises, donated over several years to Bicentennial Park on Sixth Street in Dunkirk by Janice and Ron Budniewski, have come into their full glory this year and have been selected to launch the Garden of the Week selection from Academy Heights. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the peacefulness of the park, contribute plants if you wish or just enjoy listening to the water in Crooked Brook. Upward Bound students will be tending the gardens this summer, removing non-native invasive species from the back of the park. SUNY students earlier in the spring left a rock with one of Emily Dickenson’s poems, as part of the Big Read.
