History & Design:

The upper garden is a tribute to composer Franz Liszt and was dedicated on the anniversary of his birth. The upper level includes a large fountain, and has a expansive balcony overlooking a wooded hill leading to the lower level. The entrance way, with an wrought-iron arch, is reminiscent of gateways to rural estates in Hungary.

The upper level also includes statues of author and dramatist Imre Madach and poet Endre Edy.

In recent decades, the Hungarian Cultural Garden has developed its lower level on Martin Luther King Blvd. Its sleek white curved stone honors Hungarian notables; the lower level is enhanced with flowers and bushes along a sidewalk path leading from the street to the stone wall. The Garden plans to dedicate a new peace statue in the summer of 2020.
