GOOD TO KNOW BEFORE YOU ENROLL WHAT DO THESE SYMBOLS MEAN? NEW! First Time Offered Give it a try!

Spectators

Register First

All persons are required to register PRIOR to participation in ANY program. Registrations and fees cannot be handled at the sites by instructors or any staff members. Please be prepared to show your receipt at the first class session. Instructors have the authority to disallow participation until proof is given. Registration Information (page 54) Registration Forms (pages 56-57)

Ages Indicated A Cooperative Program Agreement with other local recreation departments or agencies.

“Time Out” Dates This is the date our staff checks class enrollment status. If the minimum enrollment has not been met, the class may be cancelled. Yes, you can register in-person or by fax after the “Time Out” date if openings exist. To check class status call

(414) 329-5370 (M-F 8 AM-5 PM).

Remember to bring your receipt to first class for verification.

Early Bird Discount Register early and save!

T-Shirt This program includes a t-shirt. Pick your shirt size when registering

Children must be the age indicated on or before the FIRST class session.

Self-care

In classes where caregivers are not required, children must be able to provide self-care in a group setting (ie: able to wash hands and use restroom facilities without assistance).

Starting & Ending Class Times

Our instructors need time to open facilities and prepare for your class. Please provide proper supervision as children “dropped off” before classes start will not be supervised by our staff. Instructors will call their class and take attendance. Parents should wait until this has taken place before leaving. Classes will end as scheduled. Instructors are either preparing for the next class or closing the facility; your promptness in picking up your child is necessary. Please do not arrive prior to 10 minutes before the start of your class as the locker rooms or class room may not be open before this time. If your program involves use of locker rooms, plan to depart no later than 10 minutes after the scheduled conclusion of your program.

Waiting Areas

Most facilities have a designated spot where parents may wait during classes. Please help us keep the privilege of use of these facilities by not wandering around the buildings, no food or drink, and please keep siblings under supervision.

Makeups Special Refund Note Due to the purchasing of supplies, requests for refunds, credits or transfers after the “Time Out” date will only be honored if your spot can be filled.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Classes missed for individual absences (ie: illness, vacations, etc.) are not “made up,” nor may participants attend classes other than the one they are registered for.

One of the fundamental instructional program goals is to provide your child with a fun and positive learning opportunity with their peers while developing separation skills. Parents are welcome to observe the last scheduled class of the semester. (Exception: Swim lessons, spectators are permitted on the first day also.) For the best instructional atmosphere, observation of other class sessions is not permitted. Please feel free to discuss your child’s progress before and after class with the instructor.

• Parent/Child Classes

The spectator policy remains the same. Please make arrangements for siblings as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallway or locker room areas.

• Adult Classes

P  lease make arrangements for your children as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallways or locker room areas.

Round Up Sponsorships

The Department does not wish to exclude any City of Greenfield youth from participation on the basis of their ability to pay. There is an opportunity during registration to donate to help this cause by “rounding up” your registration fee to provide financial assistance for those unable to afford program fees for youth programs. A donation line is included on the registration form – you can donate any amount you see fit by adding the amount to your program fee total. Persons who feel they are unable to afford the cost of a youth activity may apply for a reduction of fees utilizing the “Round Up” Sponsorship donations which help fund these requests. City of Greenfield residents may apply for financial assistance by contacting the Parks & Recreation Department office at least one week prior to registering for youth programs.

AQUATICS American Red Cross

SWIMMING AND WATER SAFETY PROGRAM Our Learn to Swim program follows the principles and methods of the American Red Cross to combine the best in swim instruction with a strong emphasis on drowning prevention and water safety. Learn how to swim with the most trusted name in aquatic training. LEVELS: Please refer to the chart on page 7. Participants start at either Starfish or Level One and as their skill level progresses, they move up through the levels. At the conclusion of each semester, each child will be given a skill sheet indicating their progress. PROFESSIONAL STAFF: The Greenfield Parks & Recreation Department is a Licensed Training Provider of American Red Cross programs. Our staff members are trained and certified American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors (WSI) and American Red Cross Lifeguards (LG).

AQUATIC GENERAL POLICIES What To Bring

Participants must furnish their own suits, locks, and towels. Patrons are allowed to bring towels & bags on the deck. The Department of Parks & Recreation and School Districts are not responsible for any lost or damaged articles. Showers must be taken before swimming. NO FOOD OR DRINKS are permitted. Contents of locker and lock must be removed after each class. Locker room attendants are NOT on duty... However, locker room checks will be made periodically by pool staff. Youth who are 5 years of age or older must use the gender appropriate locker room. Prior to the start of the class and once dismissed from the pool, participants are not supervised by the swim staff. Please plan accordingly.

Pool Temperature & Maintenance Water and air temperature are regulated by the High School maintenance department, not the Department of Parks & Recreation. Due to limited capabilities of swimming pool equipment, the maintenance department is making every attempt to maintain a water temperature of 80°. This may be cold for some swimmers.

AQUATICS Swimming & Water Safety Levels

The American Red Cross offers comprehensive course levels that teach your child how to swim skillfully and safely. Skills taught are progressive, so children advance upon completion of all the skills in the previous level. New to our program? Either enroll your child in Starfish (Ages 4-6) or Level One (Ages 6-9), or attend a swim pre-test session to determine which level is most appropriate for your child based upon their water skills. Levels

Requirements

Skills Taught

PARENT AND CHILD AQUATICS Parent/Child Swim

Ages 1-4 Years

Ratio 1:10

Each child must be accompanied by parent or caregiver

Parents and children learn together to increase a child’s comfort level in the water and build a foundation of basic skills, such as arm and leg movements and breath control. This level is fun-filled and helps introduce water safety concepts, encouraging a healthy recreational habit. If your child is not 100% toilet trained, they will need to wear a swim diaper under their swim suit. The water temperature is approximately 80 degrees, which may be cold for younger swimmers, so a long-sleeved swim/sun type top is recommended.

Starfish orients children to the aquatic environment and helps them gain basic aquatic skills that are the foundation for the later levels. Front and back floats, glides, and leg and arm actions are taught. Age appropriate water safety topics are reviewed. Seahorse builds upon the Starfish skills to help children gain greater independence in their skills and develop more comfort in and around the water. Bobs, retrieving objects under water, floating and gliding independently, treading water, and combined arm-and-leg actions front and back are the focus. Goldfish further develops the Seahorse skills so children gain basic swimming propulsive skills. Floats and glides into a vertical position, rotary breathing, how to change direction while swimming, treading water, and independent swimming on front and back strokes are the primary focus.

LEARN-TO-SWIM (AGES 6-TEENS)

Ratio 1:8

Introduction to Water Skills Level 1 teaches basic personal water safety and skills to help children feel comfortable in the water while learning elementary aquatic skills. Age appropriate water safety topics are reviewed. Fundamental Aquatic Skills Level 2 gives participants success with fundamental skills such as floating and recovering to vertical position. Participants continue to explore simultaneous and alternating arm action on front and back.

Stroke Development Level 3 teaches the survival float, elementary backstroke, breaststroke, backstroke and coordination of front crawl. Participants are introduced to dolphin kick, swimming in deep water, and basic diving skills. Stroke Improvement Level 4 develops confidence in previously learned strokes and increases distance swimming. Backstroke and breaststroke are further developed. Participants are introduced to butterfly and taught sidestroke. Stroke Refinement Level 5 refines strokes learned in Level 4 and increases distances of swimming. Participants are also introduced to front and back flip turns.

Swimming and Skill Proficiency Level 6 refines the strokes so participants swim with ease, efficiency, power and smoothness over greater distances. It helps prepare for more advanced classes such as Lifeguarding and Competitive Swimming. This level is unique to Greenfield Parks & Recreation to keep kids swimming. Stroke refinements, junior lifeguarding skills, and fitness swimming are just some of the things this level can cover all based upon the interest of the class.

To ensure that the playground experiences are positive for everyone involved and that one child’s behavior does not limit or interfere with another child’s experience, the following “Code of Conduct” will be administered throughout the summer:

Children may not be dropped off prior to the stated times. This is a safety issue, since everyone dropped off needs to be supervised and our staff will not be there yet. Children also need to be picked up no later than the 5:30 PM time. Late pick-ups take our staff away from other programs. If a child is repeatedly dropped off early or picked up late, you may be charged for our staff time and your child dropped from the program.

ARRIVAL/PICK-UP

• Children must be quiet and attentive when the playground supervisor or leaders are presenting instructions and/or information. • Children will be responsible for the equipment they are using. They must use the equipment for the intended purpose and are responsible for putting the equipment away when done. • Running is not allowed in the hallways. • Hitting, kicking, pushing, and other types of VERBAL and/or inappropriate PHYSICAL behavior will not be acceptable among the children and will not be tolerated. • Weapon-like toys, including squirt guns will not be allowed. Our discipline procedures will be spelled out in greater detail in the Playground site newsletter. Please take time to review this information with your child so we can have a safe and enjoyable summer. Depending upon the severity of the conduct, staff will implement time-outs to 1 day suspensions to removal from the program.

DROP-IN VISITORS

All participants must be registered. As of Summer 2016, drop-ins are no longer accepted.

MEDICATIONS

Park and Recreation Department staff members are not allowed to provide medications for any participant. If your child needs assistance during the day, you will need to make other arrangements to provide that assistance.

PROPER ATTIRE

Participants are required to dress appropriately for these activities—sneakers, socks, shorts, and T-shirts are fine. Sunscreen/sun block should be applied prior to coming and some should be sent along with your child to apply during the day. Sandals and Jelly shoes are not allowed for safety reasons. Good clothes are not recommended because arts & crafts and game activities can get messy. For supervision reasons, participants MUST wear their Greenfield Playground T-shirt on the days of field trips.

PROGRAM FEES

The program fee indicated is for the total session. Sorry, fees can’t be pro-rated. The fee breaks down to an average of $2.15 per hour for School Age. Non-residents of Greenfield who are residents of the Whitnall School District may enroll in the playground program at the Whitnall Middle School and pay the resident fee. (R) = Resident (Greenfield resident or Whitnall School District resident and/or attending a Greenfield or Whitnall School District public school.)

on the move - MARTIAL ARTS TAE KWON DO Youth - Adult Classes will be conducted by Joe Peterson & Staff, Chosun Black Belt Academy Chosun Black Belt Academy, 7123 S. 76th St. (S. 76th & Rawson - Franklin) LITTLE NINJAS (Ages 3-5 years) Little Ninjas is an easy-to understand class for the younger child to gain the benefits of Tae Kwon Do. There will be emphasis placed on the physical techniques so the participant’s body can begin growing with the movements and burn up energy. The very basics will be taught, with additions of important outside aspects for children such as stranger self-defense and lost-in-the-store safety. CHILDREN (Ages 6-12 years) Children’s Tae Kwon Do is great for development of self-discipline and physical fitness. Children who learn Tae Kwon Do also benefit from increased self-esteem, more confidence and assertiveness, more focus and concentration, better discipline and self-control, respect for authority, self-defense, and physical activity. Children who study this art will learn when it is okay to use it as the code. The martial artist forbids unfair assaults or unnecessary use of force, so it is for emergencies only. TEEN/ADULT (Ages 13+) Tae Kwon Do is great for mental, physical, and spiritual development. Become more flexible, agile, and physically stronger while increasing balance. For a Tae Kwon Do practitioner, his entire body is his weapon, defending easily against all aggressors with their hands, fists, elbows, knees, and feet. FAMILY (Youth (Ages 6+) to Adults) Tae Kwon Do is a wonderful activity to practice as a family! Parents will have a great time working out with their children in the same class. Tae Kwon Do has SO many benefits for both children AND adults that it makes it the perfect way to stay fit and have fun TOGETHER. For adults, TKD helps to increase flexibility, relieve stress, strengthen balance and learn life-saving self-defense. In children, TKD helps to improve confidence, increase focus, build stronger physical skills like balance, coordination and agility, in addition to building great goalsetting skills. No matter the reason for practicing Tae Kwon Do initially, students of the art benefit physically, mentally and spiritually. Practice Tae Kwon Do together but feel the benefits as an individual!

FUNDAMENTALS OF WATERCOLOR

Adults & Teens (Ages 16+) Ever considered exploring traditional Watercolor media but were not sure how to get started or if it is even for you? Learn 9 different watercolor techniques (darkest tone, lightest tone, even wash, wet-onwet, wet-on-dry, fade, blend, shade, leaving white) and begin to understand how to apply it to finished pieces. Create a practice sheet and painting using the techniques learned in class. This introductory class can open and expand your artistic knowledge and hopefully inform and inspire you to want to learn more! All supplies included.

BLOCK PRINTING NEW!

Adults (Ages 18+) Block Printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking, and has been around for thousands of years. It is essentially using a carved material covered in ink to transfer an image on to paper, fabric, wood, canvas or any other materials you might want to experiment with at home. Block Printing can be done with wood, linoleum, rubber, or any other materials. We will be working with linoleum. You will find that images that are printed with this technique are typically much bolder than other types of printmaking. As this is done by hand, the ink sits on the surface which adds a raised texture to the paper.

GENERAL INFORMATION - LEGACY BRICKS As part of the City’s 50th Celebration Legacy Project in 2006, a fountain was placed in Bicentennial Park (51st & Layton, near the Law Enforcement Center, Fire Station and Library) as a centerpiece. Surrounding features include flag poles, benches, and a stone marker, all framed by a beautiful garden and landscaping. The outer area of the fountain is paved with bricks, providing a unique opportunity to make a lasting mark to:

• Commemorate your family’s place in Greenfield History • Remember a loved one • Honor a family member, friend or associate • Recognize an achievement • Celebrate a special occasion/event • Promote your business

The bricks are engraved using a laser process that will penetrate, melt and crystallize the clay brick, resulting in a permanent engraving. The money raised from this project will help fund numerous projects within the City of Greenfield Parks & Recreation Department. Orders are accepted throughout the year. Bricks are installed in either Spring or Fall. All contributions are tax deductible, pricing is subject to change.

Welcome to the Summer Edition of the GREENfield SHEET! Summer cannot come soon enough! Spring and summer bring a number of fantastic events to Greenfield.The biggest event is Memorial Day weekend’s annual Dan Jansen Fest which is celebrating its 25th year.This year promises to be memorable. The “Moving Wall”, a traveling half-size replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C., will be coming to Konkel Park. The Moving Wall travels around the country, allowing veterans and the public to visit and view this memorial which recognizes the men and women who served and died during the Vietnam War. It will be displayed at Konkel Park beginning at 2 p.m. on May 23rd through 4 p.m. on May 27th and will be open to the public 24 hours a day. I want to personally thank all of those that are assisting with this important event. A special shout out goes to the VFW Post in Greendale and the American Legion Post in West Allis who have provided a wealth of knowledge and assistance.

CITY DEPARTMENTS

As Wisconsin’s 20th largest City, it’s important that Greenfield has a permanent memorial to recognize our Veterans. I’m very proud to note that efforts to create a permanent Veterans Memorial at Konkel Park will formally kickoff during the Moving Wall visit. The permanent memorial will recognize all Veterans who have sacrificed so much for so many.

A new event coming to Konkel June 14-15 is Party with the Pack at Henderson’s Ride for Hope. Former Packer William Henderson and some of his old football friends are coming to Greenfield to bring awareness to the anti-bullying effort he champions with proceeds benefiting the Greenfield and Whitnall School Districts. The weekend event includes a partnership ride with the House of Harley as well as events at the Park. Other big events include two Car Shows at Konkel in late summer (not including the always great show at Kulwicki Park hosted by the Greater Greenfield Lions). In addition there are concerts at the AMP throughout the summer as well as other family friendly activities. Of course, don’t forget our wonderful Farmers’ Market Sundays May through October from 10 am - 2 pm. Layton Avenue is transforming in ways as our “Main Street.” It’s the artery that connects the entire City. Konkel Park is an integral part, or heart, of our Community. Commercial development inquiries remain very positive. 84 South is in the final stages of final build out. Expect activity moving forward at The Lokal, on the corner of 84th & Layton. We continue to focus our efforts on the next areas of attention, notably Spring Mall, 894/Loomis, 27th Street, and 76th Street. The biggest capital improvement projects in the City include 92nd Street (a County project), 43rd Street south of Grange, 116th north of Layton, and Morgan between Forest Home and 43rd (a State project). We are making a concerted effort to get the word and updates out on these efforts. If you have a question, please contact our Department of Neighborhood Services. Finally, heart-felt sympathies go out to the families and friends of Milwaukee Police Officer Matt Rittner. Matt had deep roots in Greenfield and the surrounding community. Lest we ever forget the sacrifices made by those who serve and protect us. Thank you, Matt. Thank you all.

With free SeeClickFix mobile app and web tools, Greenfield citizens will now be able to provide department staff with pictures, videos, specific descriptions, and more — valuable information needed to get the job done efficiently. In addition, the SeeClickFix platform provides Greenfield officials with a centralized issue management system to manage issues from creation to resolution — engaging Greenfield citizens throughout the process. This partnership not only allows Greenfield citizens to report problems, but also to view, comment on, and vote to fix problems submitted by their neighbors. Citizens can even create their own “watch areas” to receive notifications about all the issues reported in their community, enabling them to follow the progress of all service requests — not just the ones they report. The Greenfield Resolve It mobile app is available for download on Android and iPhone. In addition to the mobile apps, citizens can send reports to the Greenfield’s website and seeclickfix.com.

About SeeClickFix SeeClickFix was founded in 2008 to empower citizens with tools to publicly document quality of life concerns in their neighborhoods. By radically improving the quantity and quality of this data, SeeClickFix was quickly adopted by local governments, who needed a better way to receive information from citizens. This exchange helped to build one of the largest neighborhood networks in the world — upon which public agencies and public citizens engage to improve communities. Today, SeeClickFix has official partnerships with hundreds of cities, engaging hundreds of thousands of citizens in the resolution of millions of issues. SeeClickFix has worked with government partners to develop municipal management tools on top of this citizen network. As SeeClickFix is adopted into the everyday lives of government users, the benefit of the engaged citizen base continues to grow.

Greenfield Sheet | Community Newsletter

ISO Class 2 Greenfield FireRescue became an ISO Class 2 department on March 1, 2019. Greenfield FireRescue underwent an ISO (Insurance Services Office) re-evaluation this fall (last done in 2008 – we were previously rated Class 3). Less than 4% of US Fire Departments receive a Class 2 or better ISO rating. A little bit about ISO...ISO’s staff collects information about municipal fire protection efforts in communities throughout the United States. ISO analyzes the relevant data and assigns a Public Protection Classification (PPC) – a number from 1 to 10. Class 1 generally represents superior property fire protection, Class 10 indicates that the area’s fire suppression program does not meet ISO’s minimum criteria. Many U.S. insurers of homes and business property use ISO’s Public Protection Classifications in calculating premiums. In general, the price of fire insurance in a community with a good PPC is substantially lower than in a community with a poor PPC, assuming all other factors are equal. While there can be “banding” of ISO ratings when evaluating residential properties; there can be insurance differences in larger structures (apartment, commercial) based on PPC. ISO ratings are based on the following: • 50% Fire Department review (Fire Companies, Apparatus, Pump Capacity, Training, Operational Considerations, Community Risk Reduction) • 10% Emergency Communications (Reporting, Telecommunications-dis patch, Dispatch circuits.  • 40% Water Supply (Supply system, hydrants, inspection/flow testing) By no means is an ISO rating the single determinant of a department. Nonetheless, certainly a sense of improvement and pride but we will not rest on it. We will continue to improve, evolve, and with an emphasis on safety. So...Thanks to the past for getting us here. Thanks to our partners that play a role in our ISO rating and many of our other initiatives; Greenfield Police Department -Dispatch, Greenfield Public Works, Milwaukee Water and Mutual Aid/Shared Services departments. Thanks to our Mayor, Elected Officials for giving us the means and latitude. Thanks to our members for their continuous improvement and the service we provide. Thanks to our #community for their support.


By the Numbers In 2018, The Greenfield Fire Department responded to over 5400 calls for service. The number one emergency call was for falls or injuries from falls. As part of the department’s Community Risk Reduction effort and in collaboration with the Greenfield Health Department, fall prevention education is now in its’ fourth year. Exciting programs such as Stepping On fall prevention and Living Well with Chronic Conditions are being offered throughout the city. Contact Battalion Chief Dan Weber for more information or log onto the city’s website and enroll in a class today! Space is limited.

Therefore, the Greenfield Fire Department offers these additional recommendations: •O  pen burning is only allowed during prescribed times and is subject to regulation and violation. • When allowed, limit the number of open burning fires. Don’t burn every day, just on occasion. •M  ove the location in your yard that complies with distance requirements but also does not allow smoke to immediately drift towards neighbors or structures. •D  o not have fires when the air is heavy and smoke stays close to the ground. Be aware of wind direction/speed. •B  e aware of neighbor’s windows being open. • Be a good neighbor.

WORKING TOGETHER TO KEEP CHILDREN SAFE IN CARS

FORGET SOMETHING? A HOT CAR CAN BE DEADLY

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in children ages two to 14, and the leading cause of injury-related death for children younger than two. • Keep Children rear-facing for at least 2 years when riding in cars • Install your child’s car seat using either the lower anchors (LATCH) or seatbelt • Car seat labels help you choose the correct carseat for your child’s height and weight • 3 out of 4 car seats are installed incorrectly Do you have questions about a child’s car seat? A Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician is available to answer your questions, provide education, and check to make sure your car seat is installed correctly. Appointments are required and take about 30 minutes. Call Greenfield Health Department at (414) 329-5275 or the Greenfield Fire Department at (414) 595-7946 to make an appointment. *Program for Greenfield Residents only

Heatstroke is one of the leading causes of death among children. Unfortunately, even great parents can forget a child in the back seat. Other risk factors include caregivers who aren’t used to driving kids or whose routine suddenly changes. Whether you’re a parent, caregiver or bystander of a child left in a car, it’s vitally important to understand children are more vulnerable to heatstroke than adults. Follow these important rules and tips to protect children from heatstroke: • Look before you lock: Make it a habit to look in the car before you lock it. Leave your purse or phone near your child. • Never Leave a Child Alone in a Car: Even when it’s not sunny. On a 75 degree day, the inside of a car can reach 100 degrees within 10 minutes and it can reach 120 degrees in just 30 minutes. A child’s body heats up faster than an adult’s and they can’t cool down as effectively. Within MINUTES of being left in a parked car, a child’s body can become overwhelmed by the heat, they can lose conscious- ness, and hyperthermia can set in. • TAKE ACTION if You Notice a Child Alone in a Car! Protecting children is everyone’s business. • Get Involved. Find and share cam- paign information for parents, care givers, schools and organizations, and remind everyone to Look Before You Lock!

Children can be seriously injured or die from heatstroke, especially young children. A car can heat up 19 degrees in just 10 minutes, and even cracking a window will not help. Here are a few tips to help prevent accidental injury or death from heatstroke: 1. Avoid heatstroke-related injury and death by never leaving your child alone in a car, not even for a minute. Always lock your doors and trunks even in your driveway. And keep your keys and key fobs out of the reach of kids. 2. Create reminders by putting some- thing in the back of your car next to your child such as a briefcase, a purse or a cell phone that is needed at your final destination. This is especially important if you’re not following your normal routine. 3. Take action. If you see a child alone in a car, call 911. Emergency personnel want you to call. They are trained to respond to these situations. One call could save a life.

RODENT ACTIVITY IN SUMMER MONTHS As warmer weather approaches, with it comes a number of furry critters and pests to be on the lookout for as you enjoy your summer fun. Each year, the Greenfield Health Department investigates approximately a dozen rat complaints across the city. While not a significant issue, we encourage all residents to take an active role in preventing the presence of rats in our community: • Keep bird feeders and the availability of bird food, on the ground or in the air, to a minimum; • Frequently pick up any fruits or vegetables off the ground or re move from trees, bushes, and gardens as needed; • Ensure all garbage and refuse is kept in garbage containers/dumpsters, when possible; • Remove brush, junk, or other debris from your yard; • Frequently remove pet waste from your yard; and • Trim overgrown shrubs, bushes, tall weeds, high grass, etc. Remember, rats are a community issue and the responsibility of every community member. Should you suspect or see rodent activity, call the Greenfield Health Department at (414) 329-5267. With everyone’s cooperation, we can keep our city rat free.

Remember – a parked car is no place for a child. Take them with you EVERY TIME. For more tips and information please visit https://www.safercar.gov/parents/InandAroundtheCar/heatstroke.htm

A DAY AT RADLER’S Private Botanic Gardens and Rosarium Saturday, July 20 10:00 AM-4:00 PM 10020 West Meadow Drive • Greenfield

Due to popular demand, the Beautification Committee will again sponsor a day at Radler’s fabulous Botanical Garden and Rosarium. A very popular attraction at previous GBC Garden tours, this garden is a Greenfield gem! The sloping garden uses stone to create terraces, raised beds, waterfalls, and a very large fireplace and seating area. Ponds, sculpture and an extensive stream meanders through the yard providing home to Radler’s tame goldfish. There is even a three-story Garden shed with observation deck. Lastly there is a Knock Out rose garden, the most popular rose in America for several years. Will and his staff will be available to help visitors understand the vast gardens.


BE KIND TO YOUR TREES THIS SPRING, MULCH THEM.

WHAT’S THAT BIG GREEN BAG DOING ON THAT TREE? You will soon notice big green bags hanging on newly planted trees in Greenfield known as Gator Bags. If you have a new tree in front of your house, we ask your help by filling the gator bag with water once a week, until the city removes them in early fall. The watering bags allow water to slowly drain over a period of 5 to 9 hours, concentrating the water on the root zone where it is needed most. Research has shown that using watering bags can improve tree establishment and survival. Please call the Department of Public Works if a tree or gator bag becomes dislodged or damaged in any way. With your help we can restore vital tree canopy to our community.

Spring is coming and the single best thing you can do for your trees and shrubs is to give them a fresh layer of a good organic mulch. Apply mulch 3” to a maximum of 4” inches deep and cover as much of the root zone as possible. Do not put mulch directly against the trunk of a tree. Organic mulch keeps roots cool and moist and returns vital nutrients and a host of beneficial bacteria and fungi to the soil as it breaks down. Regular applications of mulch can in a small way mimic the natural decaying of leaves and duff on the forest floor. Do not use stone or other inorganic mulches. Inorganic mulches do more harm than good. Stone mulch keeps roots hot and dry and provide no nutrient value often causing gradual decline. Greenfield provides high quality compost mulch and wood chips, free of charge to Greenfield residents. Compost and woodchips can be picked up from the bins behind the Greenfield Public library as they become available each season.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE THE CITY RIGHT OF WAY, (ROW) IS? The Right of Way is generally the small area between your property and the city street that is technically owned by the city. Residents are required to mow and keep their adjacent ROW clean, however trees and shrubs planted in the city right of way are owned by the City of Greenfield and maintained by the Department of Public Works. Do not prune, remove or plant any trees or shrubs in the city ROW without expressed written permission by the city of Greenfield. Removing or destroying trees from city ROW without permission is considered an act of vandalism. Your property and ROW boundaries can be found on the city’s web site GIS by searching your address & tax key.
