32. Serbian Garden (1932/2008)
Dedicated on October 5, 2008, the Serbian Garden features a central plaza with marble cube and circular concrete seating with the Garden's message. From this plaza a trail meanders, parallel to MLK Jr. Drive, to the south where it ends in a plaza dedicated to Tesla. From the plaza north you find busts of King Peter, Pupin and Njegos. Originally the republics of Serbia and Croatia were joined with Slovenia in the 1932 Yugoslav Garden. After the 1991 breakup of the Yugloslav state, the Yugoslav Garden was re-dedicated to Slovenia.
