The little triangular-shaped garden at the east end of Ducharme Park has a new look paid for with a directed gift to the GPCF that memorializes Thomas J. Doherty who loved spending time in our community.
The former plantings have been replaced with a selection of cotoneaster, forsythia, barberry, juniper, spiraea, and blue oat grass which will provide a seasonal change of color in the area surrounding the brick planter filled with summer flowers. New weed barrier and mulch took the place of the old lava rock. A second directed gift to the GPCF replaced the battered railroad ties that marked the garden’s boundaries on the street side.
These improvements, costing approximately $7,200, welcome our visitors and express the pride we have in our community.
