Projects

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. We’ll be planting flowers throughout the village and parks again this year during the month of May. Feel free to join us!

Fifty trees have been planted on Main Street.   Every spring, enjoy the blossoms as these trees get fuller and taller.  We’ll continue to prune and maintain them for your enjoyment.

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 lots of 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).

We organized Catskill’s first Roadside Cleanup in 2018 to help pick up litter and restore the beauty of our parks and roadways. Join us on April 27th for this year’s Village of Catskill’s Clean Up Day on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 9AM-Noon. Register at Howard and Main Streets. Please bring gloves and tools to remove litter, weed and rake. For more information, please contact Nancy Richards at nrichards@villageofcatskill.net or call her at 518-943-7117.

We hope you will also come and enjoy our wonderful Village by participating in our second annual Caturday festivities on June 8th. Stay tuned for more information.

This year’s America in Bloom judges will be in town between July 24-26. Feel free to stop and say ‘hello’ to them while they are out and about seeing the sights!

Watch for our annual Holiday Cookie in December. Date and location to be determined. Help us by baking cookies, buying some or purchasing a holiday wreath to decorate your doorway or home!

More ideas are budding every day!
