City of Gardens
Flowers and gardens raise our spirits and make our community a more pleasant place to live, work, and visit. Our hanging basket initiative continues to receive recognition, and other communities emulate our program. Since 1999, we’ve hung baskets in strategic locations for optimum enjoyment by residents and visitors. Your donation is greatly appreciated, and is a wonderful source of pride for our community.
Ruth A. Miller Beautification Award
In the spring of 2013, this award was created to honor Ruth A. Miller upon her retirement, for beautification contributions to the Rockford Park District, City of Gardens committee, and City of Rockford. Throughout Ruth's career, she was a civic leader for the Rockford community who was proud of her community, and sought to continually improve its appearance and image. She provided motivation that encouraged others to join together and create enthusiasm for community beautification. With Ruth's leadership, the City of Gardens hanging basket program expanded, beautification initiatives increased, and two America in Bloom awards were received.
