Monthly Park Clean Ups

Gardening Notes By Claudia Schou

Please join Bixby Park Gardening Club every 1st Saturday of the month at Bixby Park Bandshell at 9:00 a.m. Volunteers are needed, so if you or someone you know has a green thumb and is interested please contact me at

We will be documenting our volunteer efforts and results will be rewarding with a great sense of community pride and accomplishment.

There are four parcels of land at Bixby Park. For now Bixby Park Gardening Club's efforts will focus on the landscaping and maintanance around the 1930s bandshell, which is accented by Italian pine and wisteria on its trellises.
On a recent spring morning, a handful of volunteers planted more than a dozen shrubs and plants around the bandshell, including Raphiolepis, Raphiolepis Minor, Tarrissa Tutlei, Star Jasmine and a Camillia tree.
I would like to take this moment to encourage you to visit the park, if you have not done so in a long time, and take a look at our progress at the bandshell. I would also like to encourage park visitors to assist us in our efforts to keep the park clean. 
Thank you for your interest in Bixby Park and I look forward to meeting you on Gardening Day!
