The City of Green is implementing new beautification efforts in our public areas, with an emphasis on the City’s parks. We are excited to announce a new Adopt-a-Spot program designed to enhance specific areas within the Green parks system. Local groups, families and residents are encouraged to become Adopt-A-Spot Stewards to plant and care for flowers in the chosen park areas.
Registration Deadline: May 1, 2018
How the program works: The City would purchase flowers for the given site. The stewards would be responsible to plant, water and weed the site through the growing season (Approximately June- Sept).
Where are the planting sites: The City has selected safe, low traffic, family friendly sites within our parks for planting. The City has identified approximately 30 planting areas. Please see the number of sites by park that are available for adoption for the 2018 season.
- Ariss Park – 1 site
- Boettler Park – 7 sites
- Central Park -- 3 sites
- East Liberty Park – 4 sites
- Greensburg Park – 5 sites
- Spring Hill Park – 1 site
- Torok Community Park –6 sites
What do the stewards get from volunteering: The steward group will gain the opportunity to bond with each other, perhaps learn a new skill; and participate in an environmental activity to improve the community. Steward groups can be a family, a club, a sports team, a civic group, just to name a few. Best of all, the care of these flower sites will bring color and beauty to our park system for other to enjoy. Each steward group will be recognized with a sign at their planting site.
When would the planting take place: The City would provide a timeframe in which the flowers could be picked up after Memorial Day. The planting of the site would take place from June 1through the 10.
To be part of this inaugural community partnership program, please register by May 1, 2018.
