Downtown Partnership to change up Spokane Falls Boulevard raised beds
Six flower beds next to Riverfront Park will soon get a makeover.
The Downtown Spokane Partnership replants the flower beds every year, but this year will add new varieties and designs after it was awarded an $8,000 grant from BNSF Railway Corp. and the Arbor Day Foundation.
A group of volunteers and downtown Spokane Partnership employees will plant flowers and other plants Thursday, and landscaping students from Spokane Community College will design the beds. Karen Fritz, the Downtown Spokane Partnership’s clean team supervisor, said the grant will pay for species that are far more unique than the petunias and marigolds the partnership usually plants.
