The Town of Amherstburg has won best container planting and hanging baskets in the 2016 Ontario Parks Association Municipal Floral Display Competition.
The annual displays were planted by Amherstburg’s Parks Department, under the direction of Annette Zahaluk who is the manager of Parks, Green Spaces and Naturalized Areas for the town.
“Given the scale of competitors and entries, it was a very proud moment representing the Town of Amherstburg Parks Department,” said Zahaluk.
“It’s not a surprise given the attention and TLC that our gardens receive from our Parks department team under Annette’s passionate eye. Our baskets are an attraction, coupled with the beauty of our parks and public spaces, garden tourism is flourishing” adds Mayor Aldo DiCarlo.
