The Modesto Garden Club's exhibit in the Stanislaus Fair Floriculture division depicts a young man spending the day in the park in the 1950's, fishing and having a picnic. The path goes through the park and continues on into the future. The exhibit's theme was the "good ole days," and the Club won second place in the large 10x20' category. The exhibit was designed and built by the Planters and Groomers group.
