GENEVA GARDEN CLUB PARK

Over the course of this summer and fall, the Geneva Garden Club has put great effort into rejuvinating Garden Club Park.   Hardy perennials and shrubs were planted to provide a tranquil and awe-inspiring setting on the Fox River above the Dam.  The greatest challenge at Geneva Garden Club Park is the lack of a water source.  All of the new plant material was carefully chosen with this issue in mind and are drought resistant.  When visiting Garden Club Park, you may find garden club members removing jugs of water from their cars in attempts to keep the plants watered and healthy.  Garden Club Park is located one block north of State Street on North River Lane, next to Riverside Banquets.

GENEVA BEAUTIFICATION

The Geneva Garden Club proudly maintains the knuckle located downtown at the corner of 3rd & State Street in front of State Street Jewelers.  The Geneva Beautification Committee held it’s 2nd Annual “Tour de Fleur” contest where people could vote for their favorite knuckle.  Each vote cost $1 with all the proceeds going to the Geneva Beautification Committee.  The Geneva Garden Club’s knuckle, “Le Potager,” came in 2nd place for the second year in a row.  Thank you everyone who voted for us and for supporting such a great cause.
