Subject: Oak Circle Park Featured in Bay-Friendly Garden Tour on June 4, 2017

The Town of Yountville is pleased to announce that Oak Circle Park will be featured in the Bay-Friendly Garden Tour on June 4, 2017. 

This park was completed in June 2016 and features a variety of drought tolerant plants, showcasing the different colors, depth and the diversity that California native plants can bring to enhance your garden or open space. Gretchen McCann, the landscape architect for this project, has offered to be the docent for the tour!

“The Town is incredibly proud to share how we took advantage of drought tolerant species. In fact, we’ve integrated this type of planting throughout the Town. The Parks Department has become extremely knowledgeable, and have done an excellent job beautifying and maintaining Oak Circle Park,” says Joe Tagliaboschi, Public Works Director.
