Stephens Parkview Neighborhood

Flower Garden Flower Garden Flower Garden Flower Garden

On July 10, 2020, a small group of socially-distancing SPNG members gathered in Stephens Park at the corner of 7th St and 15th Ave to plant flowers in a garden that is normally maintained by the City of Moline. City planting did not occur this summer due to budget issues related to the pandemic. SPNG members obtained both annual and perennial plants which were donated by the Friends of Riverside Park Gardens in Moline, plants that could not be sold at their annual plant sale which was canceled due to the pandemic. Enthusiastic SPNG members led by Co-Chairs Kathy Negaard and Barb Butterworth included Bruce & Linda Billingsley, Alice Lee, Rob Butterworth and Bill Abel.

The Second Annual Joint Trunk or Treat was held on Saturday, October 19, 2019. This collaboration was sponsored by the Stephens Parkview and Floreciente Neighborhood Groups and held at the Esperanza Center in Floreciente. Trunk or Treat is a family-friendly event, especially well-liked by those with the littlest of kiddos. And weather for this particular one was a lot nicer than the subsequent snowy Halloween night!

On August 31, 2019, a group of a dozen SPNG volunteers gathered together to refresh and renew the Stephens Park perennial garden, located at the corner of 4th St and 15th Ave. Project Leaders were Barb & Rob Butterworth. With the City of Moline providing tools and mulch to aid the volunteers, over 3 dozen new plants were added to the garden, with a smaller number being removed or relocated due to deterioration.
