Sunken Gardens/Shakespeare Gardens were originally dedicated to Huntington in 1924 and the park flourished for many years. However, time and lack of money caused the gardens to lose their luster. From 1964 to 1967, the city took on a revitalizing plan to restore the gardens to their once magnificent glory.

This enchanting park, where graceful fieldstone footbridges span a "U" shaped pond, and stone stairways lead visitors to the gardens below, was erected out of an old abandoned stone quarry.  The quarry's natural rough-hewn stonewalls provided a living amphitheater, which architects incorporated in the designing of the ponds, walks, bridges, flowers and foliage.

Sunken Gardens is available for rental for weddings and events.
