The park was designed by Herbert Hare for the J. C. Nichols Company. Hare purchased the columns from Verona, Italy. In 1986, Mission Hills Homes Association and residents raised mony to clean, repair and preserve the columns and statuary. The City joined the Association to restore and preserve existing statuary. Leading to the street is a narrow 50 foot long rectangular reflecting pool with three fountains.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: J. C. Nichols Company (former owners, before 1926); Hare & Hare (landscape architects, 1925); Herbert Hare (landscape architect, 1925); and Ayers & Ayers (architects, 1930).
