The Community Gardens at Historic Bethabara Park have been developed as a public education project. Garden plots are cultivated today by interested gardeners in the community. The Bethabara community gardeners plant either heritage plants or their cultivars from Reuter's plant list.The Community Garden today, an example of colonial gardening, is not an exact reconstruction, but contains reconstructed architectural elements based upon archaeology, maps, and old colonial drawings of the site.

The Community Garden is surrounded by a hand-split picket fence and contains a reconstructed arched, wooden grape arbor and a timber-framed summerhouse, all based upon contemporary illustrations and examples of colonial designs.
