About the Cleveland Cultural Gardens

Cleveland Cultural Gardens is the unique phenomenon not only in America but also in the world. We celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Cultural Gardens in 2016!

The first cultural garden, a Shakespeare Garden, has begun in 1916. The majority of the gardens were built in the 1920s and 1930s with money and labor from the WPA as well as the local ethnic communities. By 1939, there were 18 gardens.

Today, the Cleveland Cultural Gardens include fountains, decorative ironwork, and over 60 sculptures. The 29 different cultural gardens include British, Chinese, Czech, Estonian, Latvian, Armenian,  German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Polish, and Slovenian gardens, among others. Among the newest gardens there are the Syrian  garden, begun in May  of 2011, and Albanian garden, begun in 2012.

Russian Garden, yet to be built, already started cultural tradition - Grand Piano in the Russian Garden. Two wonderful Grand Piano events featured brilliant, world-knows pianists Arseny Tarasevich-Nikolaev and Stanislav Khristenko. The highest level of piano performance was also shown by Dmitry Tyurin and Nara Avetisyan, syudents of Maestro Sergey Babayan, Cleveland Institute of Music.
