Nature is found in abundance at Midland’s Dow Gardens, a 100-acre garden originally designed for the home of Dow Chemical Company founder Herbert H. Dow in 1899.
Midland's sister city in Handa, Japan, has made our community more beautiful with the gift of a Stone Lantern Garden, located on the grounds of the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library. There are also many gifts to the City that are on display at the library, and a plethora of Japanese cherry trees that dot our community's landscape.
The main entrances to Midland feature colorful wayfinding signage and a variety of flowers and plantings to greet visitors and residents alike. At the Eastman Avenue / U.S. 10 overpass, there are handcrafted copper medallions by local artists that grace all sides of the bridge.
