The Lowry Reading Garden is located at 5th and Trenton. The Reading Garden provides contemplative spaces or “reading rooms” that provide solitude or a place for friends and school groups to gather and enjoy and appreciate great literature. Inspiring seating areas, shelters, sculptures and famous quotations, along with a library of Lowry’s favorite book titles are incorporated into the park’s features.

The Borden family kindly donated all of the Reading Garden’s art and the Garden is dedicated to the late Lewis Borden. The park won the Mayor’s Design Award in 2009.
