The garden's board was established in 2001. The garden itself occupies a site (the Ellipse Garden in Freedom Park, at 5535 Centerville Road) and continues to add features and programs. Most recently a Multigenerational Enabling Garden was added to support both children's garden programs and programs for mobility-limited adults.

The Ellipse Garden (2 acres) was dedicated in 2006. It contains more than 2,000 trees, shrubs, and other plantings in a butterfly garden, herb garden, native plant garden, perennial border, pinewoods and fernery, wetlands, and wildflower meadow.
