Railroad Sends $25,000 for Flowers to Greenwood

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Canadian National Railroad thinks a Greenwood Park could use more flowers. As part of the “America in Bloom Awards” national program, the railroad donated $25,000 to the city to help beautify Rail Spike Park. The money is being matched by the city of Greenwood, and Mayor Carolyn McAdams says they are going to use it to buy trees to finish off the park which runs from the corner of Johnson and Lamar streets all the way to near U.S. Highway 82. The plan also includes re-landscaping the old railroad depot which is now used as a senior citizen building.
