Another great year at Green Hills Park - the shade structure and a new water fountain (with dog bowl!) were installed and Green Hills Park Festival was a big hit, including celebrating Gluck Orthodontics' 40th anniversary and with the Children's Entrepreneur Market joining us to add extra fun.
Coming up next year - we're adding a second water fountain to the park! It will be located near the playground and serve double duty as a water access point for our native plant project near the Arden Place entrance.
How can you help in 2024? We're always looking for folks to join our Festival planning committee, give us ideas for projects or sponsors, or volunteer to pull invasive plants. And of course your donations can make projects like natural play areas a reality. To get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org. To donate, click HERE or Venmo @friendsofghpark. Also, need a realtor? Holmes + Pruitt Homes will donate 10% of their commission to the park if you tell them that Friends of Green Hills Park sent you!
So as we close 2024, we want to particularly thank our native plant project leaders, Ashley Cantrell, Georgeanne Chapman and Marcus Owen, our treasurer Marcia Priester, frequent volunteers Simon Newman and Don Thielemann, dedicated doggie bag refiller Amanda Reinharz, Eagle Scout Tristan Simmons (built the footbridge by the pavilion), our first and most consistent donors Wood and Ginny Caldwell, Steve Manning from Invasive Plant Control, the Centennial Conservancy, the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, and everyone who volunteered their time or donated to Green Hills Park. Thank you and best wishes for 2024!
Friends of Green Hills Park is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to improving our neighborhood park, building community, and increasing walk and bike connectivity to nearby green spaces where we love to walk and play.
