Gale GardenLocated in the McIntire Historic District in Zanesville, Gale Garden is a small one acre public garden. In the early 1800s the site was a farm pasture and then a truck farm for vegetables. Kenneth and Jane Gale purchased this property in 1938 and turned this property behind their home into a retreat garden. The garden features more than 80 species of trees as well as a wide variety of woody ornamentals and perennials. The property was turned over to Mission Oaks Foundation in 2005. The garden was acquired by the Muskingum Valley Park District in 2010.
