    The well-known Dow Gardens was started in 1899 as landscaping around Dow's Midland home, eventually spreading to over 100 acres. The gardens feature flowers, shrubs, trees, ornamental grass, rocks and water in a series of lush, eye-pleasing vistas. The grounds are now open to the public, annually attracting thousands of visitors.



    The collection of plants comprises some 1,200 different trees and shrubs and 300 different perennials, wildflowers and unique ground covers. Among the outstanding displays are rhododendrons, crab apples, wildflowers, native trees and shrubs, roses, herbs, 25,000 tulips and 10,000 bedding plants. A display greenhouse is adjacent to the former Dow homestead.

    The Midland Community Center is one of the best places to be at. The reason why is they have a pool that has a slide that goes into the water. They have good exercise equipment there.
