To fulfill our mission of making the City of White Plains a better place to live, work and visit, we undertake a variety of projects. Dedicated to encouraging gardens, trees and green areas, we plant and maintain gardens, funded primarily through our Adopt-a-Park program. Our capital projects have included beautiful fountains and other structures within parks for quiet contemplation or alternately live entertainment, tree-lined thoroughfares, memorial trees and even the iconic green signs that identify major garden sponsors. Our latest capital project is a 16-foot Verdin post two-faced clock at the intersection of Mamaroneck Ave. and Bloomingdale Rd. we have donated on the occasion of our 50th anniversary. Our programs include fundraising efforts, educational activities, grants to schools and neighborhoods and recognition of businesses and homeowners who beautify their properties. The Kent Hawks Fountain, seen here and described in detail under capital projects, exemplifies a project that touches on many aspects of what we do.
