The goal of the "Park of all Seasons" is to increase the biodiversity of plants and trees throughout the park so that patrons can experience a different park every season; flowers in the spring, fruit in the summer, fall foliage and evergreens in winter. This is accomplished through various projects, including the Edible Arbor Walk and Pollinator Gardens.
Elgin Memorial Park is a beautiful 28 acre park along Main Street. The park is filled with hundreds of mature Cedar Elms providing shade for patrons and homes to birds. While these trees provide many benefits, they are also a monoculture, which means a lack of biodiversity in the park. Through the work of volunteers, Elgin Memorial Park will be transformed in to a vibrant and diverse park that is engaging in every season.
