Park City Gardens 2024 update

As summer quickly approaches, volunteers with Park City Gardens are setting to work on 20 beautiful flower gardens located throughout the city of Merrill, designed to beautify our community. Park City Gardens is a group of volunteers who have developed and maintained these gardens over many years. The success of Park City Gardens is all due to the volunteers and donations from individuals and organizations. Volunteers spend countless hours cultivating, planting, weeding, and maintaining their flower gardens. The monetary donations cover the cost of purchasing flowers, watering, fertilizer, etc.
This year Park City Gardens in need of a couple more volunteers to maintain a small garden at the entrance to Stange’s Park. Anyone interested in maintaining this garden – or volunteering in another capacity – should contact Ginny Drew at 715.218.2527 or Katy Weckwerth 715.218.5092.
