XENIA — Greene County Parks & Trails (GCP&T), OSU Extension-Greene County and Greene County Master Gardeners recently spent a day getting the display gardens at James Ranch Park ready for the coming growing season.

GCP&T volunteers, maintenance team, and office staff joined to weed, plant, move mulch and gravel, prune and more.

The display gardens at James Ranch Park, 177 Fairground Road, offer a colorful respite for those cyclists and walkers using Creekside Trail that runs adjacent to the park.

Photographers can also be found within the gardens capturing the floral and native displays.

For more information on the park or volunteering within the gardens, contact GCP&T at 937-562-6440, email info@gcparkstrails.com or visit gcparkstrails.com.
