The Great Neck Park District and fourth graders from Saddle Rock Elementary School joined forces earlier this month for what has become an annual event.

The fourth graders from Saddle Rock Elementary School did a wonderful job planting the bulbs that they look forward to seeing pop up in the springtime.

The Park District staff provided the gloves, digging tools, tulip bulbs and their skillful expertise. Park Supervisor Phillips guided and directed the children on where and how to plant the flowers.

It’s a wonderful experience for the children to plant something, nurture it and watch it grow. The children will see the fruits of their labor in the springtime when the flowers planted sprout.
