The Dow Gardens were started in 1899 by Herbert Dow, founder of The Dow Chemical Company. The Gardens, originally developed on eight acres of flat, sandy land, provided a creative outlet for Herbert Dow’ and his interest in agriculture and design. He created gardens, ponds and hills according to a simple philosophy that we still follow to this day: “never reveal the gardens’ whole beauty at first glance.”
Centrally located in downtown Midland, beautiful Dow Diamond is easily accessible from Business US 10. Dow Diamond is home to the Great Lakes Loons, Class A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
