Our club volunteers maintain a number of civic/public flower beds in Beaverton, which are appreciated and enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. These include:
Old Mill Gateway - In 2011, our club created a low maintenance garden of perennials, shrubs and grasses for the Old Mill Gate. This beautiful garden is located at the corner of Simcoe Street and Mara Road, adjacent to the Beaver River. With the beautiful backdrop of the stone gateway, this garden area includes such perennials as bee balm, coneflowers, black-eyed susan, hydrangea, lilies and more.
Cenotaph - A joint project by our club and Beaverton Lions Club, the cenotaph is located on the corner of Simcoe Street and Osborne Street, adjacent to the Town Hall. It is planted each year with tulips for the spring and annuals, like geraniums, for the summer.
Brock Thorah Medical Centre - Located on Main Street in Beaverton, this garden spans the entire front of the building and includes numerous perennials, including hydrangeas, dianthus, black-eyed susan, coneflowers, lilies, iris, grasses, bee-balm and more. Our club took over maintenance of this garden in 2020.
In 2021, our club also cleaned up the raised beds in the Harbour area and is restoring the pollinator garden in Fox Park (owned by the Conservation Club).
Other individuals and community organizations maintain/plant other public gardens in town, including the Blossom Trail in the Beaverton Fairgrounds, the "point-bed", and the Log Cabin on Simcoe Street.
