Planting shrubs at Dryden Rd

Dryden Rd./People's Park

On Dryden Rd. in Collegetown, between College Ave. and Eddy St., alongside the parking garage, is a planting of shrubs, perennials, grasses and annuals.  A strip of gardens also runs along the sidewalk from the parking garage down to Eddy St.  The strip is planted with spring bulbs and summer annuals, grasses and perennials.  At the bottom of the block and across the street is a small area known as People's Park in honor of the famous park of that name.

A peek inside the parking garage will show a number of murals, including one by Beautification artist Kellie Cox.
