Volunteers create new park for Rockglen

A group of volunteers overseen by the Rockglen Beautification Committee have begun development of a new park within Rockglen called the Heritage Orchard.  Located on 4th St. N across from the Community Rink the orchard has 100 fruit trees and roughly 25 grape vines planted already.  The trees and vines were donated by area families and planted by volunteers.

Local school children have helped as well, planting a demonstration garden and building pergolas to provide shade along planned pathways.  You can learn more about the Heritage Orchard and follow its progress at www.beautifulrockglen.com.
