Neighborhood Hosts First-Ever ‘Green Days’ Garden Tour

As part of Johnston Green Days Jun. 17-21, 2021, an annual community festival sponsored by the Johnston Chamber of Commerce, a first-ever "Garden Walk" will showcase the prairie centerpiece of the Green Meadows West neighborhood. 

The Garden Walk event starts at 8 a.m. Sat., Jun. 19, 2021. 

The Green Meadows West Homeowners' Association maintains and manages more than 17-acres of restored prairie and savanna, as well the publicly accessible Dover Park and Windsor Park. The neighborhood's signature gazebo is located at Dover Park, adjacent to the Foxboro Square business center.

Vehicle parking is available at First Baptist Church, 8250 N.W. Ave. and at the neighborhood's publicly accessible private park at the intersection of King's Row and Windsor Parkway. Please note that parking space at the Windsor Park location is limited.

A City of Johnston-maintained walking and biking trail runs through much of Green Meadows West, and interconnects to businesses, schools, other neighborhoods, and even other suburbs.

Participants will discover brochures at four stations along the way, describing plant and animal life supported by each eco-system. A children's activity will be available at the final stop.

Other Green Days events this year include a parade, 5k walk/run, carnival, and business expo. This year's theme is "Better Together."

In future years, organizers envision the event will travel to feature other "green" locations, potentially including private gardens and corporate campuses.
