Springville Park

I am proud to announce the Springville Park will be open this weekend for the annual Jackass Mail Run. My garden group, Springville Garden Friends, volunteered to plant the clock tower bed for the park today. You'll see a few candid shots taken by Phyllis of our garden group hard at work this morning at the clock tower.
The Springville Park planning, renovations, construction, and installation has been a wonderful community effort over the last several months if not years. Our garden club is but a very small part of the effort poured out by the community for our town's park. Our town is only about 1600 people but the park now looks like it belongs in a city of over 100,000 people. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in making this project a reality.
Phyllis took some wonderful photos of us. After we dug in the dirt, we all congregated at Springville Lavender Gardens with a brown bag lunch, imbibed in some lavender lemonade and some well deserved relaxation under the wisteria pergola.

You're invited to visit Springville Lavender Gardens this weekend for a native plant tour in commemoration of the 47th Annual Jackass Mail Run, and, of course, to see the new Springville Park.
