The new Stacy Boulevard Gardens have been installed and extend from the Blynman Bridge to the bocce courts. Generous Gardener volunteers have planted 22,700 tulips and 6,000 daffodils. Next spring, over 13,000 flowering perennials and annuals will be planted to bloom from early spring to late autumn. The color scheme will complement the plantings at the Fishermen’s Wives Memorial in waves of color that will move from pinks to  blues and purples, to yellow and orange, and finally bright red at either end.

This stunning addition to the City of Gloucester will provide three seasons of pleasure for residents and visitors alike.  Generous Gardeners, a 501(c)(3), will plant and maintain the new gardens.  Generous Gardeners, visible throughout the city wearing bright green aprons, have donated more than 1000 hours of volunteer efforts toward the beautification of Gloucester.
