Brockport Parks & Gardens

Brockport's Recreational Loop



These photos are of the garden spaces located within the Recreational/Cultural Arts Loop along the Erie Canal between the Main St and Park Ave bridges. 

Our hope is to revitalize the north side of the canal starting next spring and plant an attention getting, colorful, highly patterned design that will be attractive throughout the seasons. We will use the strong structure that is already in place, remove the rugosa roses and plant easy care knockout roses (red) and additional plants (yellow, blue, lavender and peach) to provide high visual and textural impact that can be viewed and enjoyed on both sides of the canal.

Many thanks for all the encouragement and support through this 2012 gardening season. Special thanks goes to Ute and Ray Duncan and Margay Blackman for their generous donation of plant material from their gardens. Bill Andrews made a donation for roses at Remembrance Park. Additionally, truly appreciated and enjoyed was the time and talent that community service workers shared (thank you Judge Bob Connors) as well as Linda Ketchum, Peter Selig and Barbara Blosenhauer and Christ Community Church. A big thank you to Harry Donahue at DPW for putting up with all our requests for wood chips and also, Andrea Perry's "dumpster diving" efforts collecting newspaper and cardboard. All in all, we are lucky to have rubbed elbows with such a kind and inspiring group of hardworking people who care so much for the village.

If you haven't had a chance, please take the time to "walk the loop" (it's about a half mile of walking exercise!) along both sides of the Erie Canal. After that walk, stop at Sagawa Park, Remembrance Park, Corbett Park and the Village Hall and see some the efforts we have put forth to make the village gardens stronger and more inviting. It is a process ... but we like to think that gardens are public art for all to enjoy.
