The Hoyt Lakes Garden Club began in 1985. It is a group of 20 volunteers that have made their City the Garden City of the Iron Range. These ambitious volunteers plant 85 planters and gardens each Spring. The planters are placed around the shopping center and government buildings. The beautiful gardens are located along the walking paths, at the golf course and Fisherman's Point Campground.

While enjoying a walk on one of our many walking trails, stop at the Memorial Garden arbor near the arena to relax and enjoy the aroma and view of the many varieties of flowers planted in the gardens there.
