Overington Love Your Park Day

The weather was sunny and beautiful during our Love Your Park event this past Saturday May 14th.  We held our Perennial plant sale and topped our previous  years sales total.

Our Friends donated over 150 plants. Master gardeners were on hand to give information about the plants that were available for sale, or to answer any garden questions.

Parks and Recreation, Garden Wagon, came with an interactive display of plant material, fun engaging games, and a smile to brighten any day.

We planted 6 crates of Cannas around the park, mulched tree pits, and flower beds.

Our thanks goes out to everyone who supported Overington Park this weekend by lending a hand or buying a plant. As always Frankford Garden Club, Frankford High School’s JR ROTC, neighbors, State Representative Jason Dawkins, Councilwoman Maria Quinones Sanchez, Parks and Recreation, Fairmount Park Conservancy, and FOOP members constant support is what makes great things happen in Overington Park. Thanks!
