New Butterfly Gardens

September 19, 2016

This weekend, we had volunteers work effortlessly planting flowers, shrubs, and plants that are butterfly friendly in 3 of our neighborhood parks.  We now have beautiful butterfly gardens at Northshore Park, Shores Park and Emerald Bay Park.  Over the past several months, Parks and Recreation and our volunteers have come up with these locations and designed beautiful butterfly friendly gardens.  Thank you very much to our volunteers for your hard work and dedication to making these gardens look absolutely beautiful.  We will be installing signs soon at these locations.  If you would like to be a VIP (Volunteers in Parks) please contact Wendy Young at 972-771-7761.


Hi! I am a proud Texas native. I probably love working and living here more than anyone you know! I have been working in city government for 19 years and in Rockwall the past 7. I enjoy watching my kids play sports and attending sporting events with my family. My hobbies are fishing, kayaking, shopping, and walks (and sometimes running) in our beautiful parks.
