Home » John Howell Park and Triangle Island Showcase Summer Color, New Plants

IMG_6321Has anyone else noticed the summer color exploding at the triangle island, and the wonderful new plants that have been installed at John Howell Park?

IMG_6344Thanks to the efforts of Nonie Daniels (landscape design and installation), Anthony DeVingo (weekly maintenance) and resident volunteers, the triangle island in front of Taco Mac and Murphy’s is looking great with lots of summer color coming out.

Special thanks also to Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation employee Charles Hutchinson who spearheaded a comprehensive department effort to address the overhead lighting challenges that have plagued John Howell Park for so long. Thanks to Hutchinson and his crew, you should find it safer now to take a walk through the park during evening or nighttime hours.

Looking good, VaHi!!
