Berlin Wall Exhibit in Woodland at Careys Secret Garden

Visit the Berlin Wall Exhibit at Careys Secret Garden. 

With 7 full size sections of the Berlin Wall installed in a woodland clearing at Careys, this exhibit is designed to start important conversations around the freedom of movement, migration and the contrast between walls designed to unite, and those designed to divide. 

The exhibit is open for viewing each day the garden is open.
