Holt In Bloom

Parks & Recreation garden crew keeps things beautiful

There’s just something about flowers in public spaces that says, “Welcome to our community.”

Holt’s floral displays began, appropriately enough, at Veterans Memorial Gardens.

“As the community started to enjoy the beauty, we began to expand it,” says Delhi Township Parks & Recreation Director Mark Jenks.

Today, in addition to those at the gardens, flowers grace a number of places in the community – including the planters in the downtown area, the 9/11 memorial at Holt and Aurelius Roads, Holt Farmers Market and even along the Delhi Trails.

It all adds “curb appeal” to our community, says Mark, who adds, “I’m a big fan of decorative corners.”

Flowers are planted and maintained by a garden staff of seasonal Delhi Parks & Recreation employees. Mark says this has proven to be the most effective way of ensuring that plantings will be regularly cared for and kept looking their best throughout the season.

‘Tis the season, so enjoy!
