Today’s Parks Pick-Me-Up visits the WaterWise Demonstration Garden, in central Springfield near the intersection of National Avenue and Linwood Street — which is, believe it or not, in the southeast tip of @Phelps Grove Park. Originally called the Xeriscape Garden, this scenic garden was created in 1992 to demonstrate the efficient use of water in landscaping, while providing an interesting and attractive area for strolling and relaxing in an urban setting. Volunteers maintain this beautiful space, coordinated through Master Gardeners of Greene County. Admission is free, and spring is a beautiful time to visit!

Be smart while visiting parks or trails: stay six feet away from others, avoid gathering in groups, cover your coughs and sneezes, and stay home if you’re showing symptoms of illness.
