The Parks Department let police know about the illicit weeds among the flowers.
Cops found one marijuana plant in three different planters. Eckerdt says they were 6 to 8 inches tall, meaning they'd been growing for a while.
"If it started from the seed, which is my estimation - if someone walked by and stuck one in the middle of each planter, it's about the time frame of when our college students started leaving," he said.
Eckerdt adds that's pure speculation, and police aren't sure who planted the greenery. The Parks Department plans to keep a closer eye on their planters now.
