Jenkins Garden Dedication Set for April 16

Jenkins Garden Dedication Set for April 16

Jenkins Garden, the new green space at the corner at Lockwood and Harrisburg, was recently planted with native trees and plants that will provide shade and a place for the public to enjoy nature while waiting for the bus or MetroRAIL. The garden, developed with the assistance of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Brazoria County Naturalists Society, is designed for wildlife, specifically pollinators, including birds, butterflies and other insects, and includes a water feature. Native Texas grasses, shrubs, and trees will provide nectar, berries and seeds.

We invite the public to join us for an official dedication in honor of the Dr. Daniel Jenkins III family, who help fund the development of the park, on Thursday, April 16 at 11am. The Jenkins’ are long-time East End advocates and owners of the Harrisburg Eye Clinic, which has a 40 year history of serving area residents.
