Transforming our Downtown through beautiful "Flowers on Douglas"
The development of Downtown Wichita, Kansas is critical for our City’s future. Citizens, visitors and businesses demand a vibrant urban environment in which they can live, work, and play. We need your help to ensure the “Flowers on Douglas” beautification project continues to evoke a sense of pride and beauty for our urban core.
Be a part of the beautification
The Flowers on Douglas project launched in 2017 with the installation of 110 planter pots showcasing flowers and greenery along Douglas Avenue. To further enhance the beautiful foliage, the project expanded in 2018 to include 85 hanging baskets filled with cascading flowers. Both arrangements are updated seasonally by group of volunteer Master Gardeners led by community partner Cindy Carnahan. They are maintained on a regular basis by Hein Landscape.
“Flowers on Douglas” is a public/private partnership in which the City of Wichita provided the planter pots and ongoing infrastructure for watering. Downtown Wichita oversees the ongoing planting and maintenance of the pots, which are funded collaboratively by Downtown property owners and private contributions.
Your investment is critical
In order to make this project a success, and maintain the level of plantings and maintenance necessary to achieve the desired visual impact, we need your financial support. With your help, we can leverage funding through Downtown Wichita to guarantee the quality and longevity of this initiative. Thank you for helping us grow our Downtown...beautifully!
