Garden Station is an art park and community garden in downtown Dayton that features murals, sculpture, community garden plots, concerts, bonfires, drum circles, festivals, markets, movies, and more! Established in 2008, Garden Station has a permaculture and creative reuse emphasis and has built a straw bale shed with a bottle wall on a pounded tire foundation with a green roof, and a greenhouse made of 2-liter pop bottles. There are community garden plots that members of the community can rent for the season. Garden Station is built and cared for with community volunteers and donations. It is not a city park or a MetroPark, but is a non-profit organization of community volunteers. Garden Station, located at 4th and Wayne, was previously owned by the railroad and used as a storage yard before it was purchased by the City of Dayton. Garden Station holds regular events, to include the Really Really Free Market, live music on the first Friday of each month, volunteer work day on Saturdays, and the Garden Station Sunday Market which features local art and produce. This Dayton Original was created for the community, by the community!
