The Kingwood Garden Club has recently completed their new "Garden of Hope" at the Kingwood Library. Many may remember thier original garden at the old library on Rustic Woods. When the city decided to make way for the new community center the garden was destroyed. 
This year the Kingwood Garden Club decided to get serious about finding a suitable place to start anew. Several areas were explored and certain criteria had to be met, but they finally decided to place it by the new library. They cleared the area, had the sprinklers rerouted, added new hardscape and then planted an array of drought- tolerant plants such as coreopsis, homestead verbena, coneflowers, native grasses, roses and more. Many patrons of the library have already commented on the lovely garden, according to club members. With the granite bench in place one may sit and contemplate the sacrifices so many made on 9/11 and the hope for a better future.
