Summer Concert Series to Replace 2020 Annual Picnic!

The annual Green Meadows West “Picnic in the Park” usually conducted in September has been temporarily replaced with a monthly series of three “socially distanced concerts” at the neighborhood’s Dover Park gazebo, July through September. Concert times are 6:30 to 8 p.m.:


Citing recommended best-practices and precautions regarding the transmission of COVID-19, “the board thought it best to rethink the ways we come together and celebrate our neighborhood,” says DeAnn Lee, chairperson for the Communications & Outreach committee. “So, while we’re not going to be able to offer favorites such as face-painting, a buffet-style barbecue, and inflatable bounce houses this year, we can revisit other Green Meadows West traditions—concerts and ice cream socials!”

Each concert will feature a different musical act. On the first scheduled date, a food truck from The Outside Scoop, Indianola, will offer complimentary ice cream cones to Green Meadows West residents. Food offerings for other concert dates are pending, and will be based on attendance. funding, and feedback.

Neighbors are encouraged to bring their own folding chairs and beverage coolers, and to observe 6-foot social distancing and masking as able. A portable toilet and hand-sanitization station will be located on site, during the events.

Started in 2005, the annual picnic has been a way to bring neighbors together to celebrate the end of summer, and to call attention to Green Meadows West’s many amenities, which include natural prairie areas, tree-lined green spaces, and privately managed parks.
