The Lubbock Garden is situated in small complex including the Memorial Rose Garden and St. Paul's on the Plain in Clapp Park. Mini-Lubbock is a playground sculpture which sits along the south end of the park near 48th St. The sculpture is used to teach elementary school children about traffic safety.
