With everyone’s hard work — and the design expertise of our Vice President, Bob Hoven — we’ve undertaken several ambitious projects. The Howard Street slide, with its impressive plantings and elegant mini “plaza” continues to flourish and delight passers-by.
We’ve revamped Leggio Park, adding more shrubs, annuals, and an urn at its center. This year, it features a new “Alphabet” and Pollinator Garden.
Fifty trees have been planted on Main Street. Every spring, enjoy the blossoms as these trees get fuller and taller. Every summer, enjoy the hanging baskets and pots of flowers that help turn our village into a garden oasis. Note that Butterfly Weed is the Catskill Flower. We have seeds available if you’d like to plant some!
We also decorate for the seasons with pumpkins in the fall and greenery with lights over the holidays.
We continue to maintain the Blue Star Memorial Park and Policeman’s Park (both which were created by the Catskill Garden Club).
And we organized Catskill’s first Roadside Cleanup to help pick up litter and restore the beauty of our parks and roadways throughout the Village and the Town.
Coming up on December 1 is our annual Holiday Cookie Sale from 9AM to 1PM at the Catskill Community Center. Join us by baking cookies, buying some or purchasing a holiday wreath to decorate your doorway or home!
More ideas are budding every day!
