Woodinville Garden Club Gives Back

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
Have you had a chance to visit the redeveloped DeYoung Park?  As our warm days become fall days, please plan to visit the beautiful park.  The Woodinville Garden Club donated the unique and functional drinking fountain located on the west side of the park.  In addition to being ADA compliant, the fountain, created by Mach 2 Arts, Inc. in Seattle serves adults, children and even dogs!

The Woodinville Garden Club is energized and happily anticipating next year’s Plant Sale and Tour of Gardens.  Thank you, Woodinville, and we look forward to another year of gardening with you and the opportunity to continue to participate in the enrichment of our community.
