Kiener Plaza Helped by Gateway Greening

ABOVE: Big bold plantings at Kiener Plaza look great

The other day I strolled through Kiener Plaza and I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful plantings.

Gateway Greening really provides a great service to the city, the parks department could never do such plantings.

    Agreed that Gateway Greening is doing a great job, but I’d also say we have a pretty good parks department.  City parks are nice places.  Chalk this up to collaboration and building connections: the median is city property so give the city credit for working out a partnership with Gateway Greening.

    Correction – I re-read the post and note the error in my comment.  The plantings you snapped are in Kiener Plaza, while I was thinking of the Market median strip across from the Plaza, but the same point remains.  It’s still a collaboration between the city and a non-governmental organization, resulting in a good outcome for St. Louis.  The Market median plantings also part of the Gateway Greening planting program, and are part of the same combined efforts of St. Louis city, probably the Downtown Partnership, maybe the Gateway Mall organization, and Gateway Greening.  These sorts of combined efforts are what we need all over St. Louis and improve our quality of life.

    Thanks for pointing them out.  I just donated to them no knowing they were part of that.
