Ray Sack Community Gardens

Gardens may be reserved in the spring to Wickliffe residents. Gardens are located on Lloyd Rd. The size of the gardens is 18’ wide by 20’deep. The gardens are to be maintained by the resident. Water is provided (you must bring your own hose). We expect everyone to respect each other by not picking from any garden but their own.
We take reservations in April and the gardens would be available to plant sometime in May. The Service Department plows the garden but it may be necessary to do some other maintenance before planting. Please enjoy the gardens and keep up the gardens until the end of the season. Signs will be posted as to the date the gardens will be terminated.
Click here for rules of the gardens and if you are a first time gardener, please fill out the form at the bottom of the rules and mail or drop off to the Recreation Department.
