We plant and replace roses when needed and work with various groups to maintain the garden. Volunteers will be used to perform maintenance activities. Replacement roses and other planting are completed according to funding.
Tea In The Rose Garden
An annual event celebrating green spaces. It also serves as opportunity each Spring to educate citizens on the value of green spaces, gardening, and the value of green spaces to the City of East Point community.
We conduct an Annual Litter Index for the City, typically in month of May. The Litter Index is a required element of the Keep America Beautiful program. It is a nationally credible tool that allows quick and reliable visual assessment of the types of litter present in the community. The data aids in determining the types of community improvement programs needed to address current conditions, and achieve long-term sustainable results. Random areas of the City are selected: residential, industrial, shopping districts, schools, downtown district and commercial districts.
