For more than 14 years, the City of Mansfield and Downtown Mansfield, Inc. have collaborated with a community of volunteers and donors to enhance the downtown area’s appearance.

Every year, this partnership aims to make the central city neighborhood more attractive by planting over 1,000 flowers in more than 150 containers. The community’s floral displays during the summer months have earned recognition on a national level and received positive feedback from many residents.

The beautification projects would not be possible without the generous support of donors.

The PlantLove campaign has been launched to raise funds annually to cover the costs of downtown beautification from April to December. The fundraising goal for 2023 is $15,000, which will cover summer plants, annual greenery, mulch, and other related expenses. Contributions of any amount are appreciated and can be made online here.

On May 16, 2023, volunteers are invited to participate in the planting and cleanup day. Plastic gloves, trash bags, and refreshments will be provided, but volunteers must bring their own trowels or gardening tools.

Your continued support has helped to create a vibrant downtown landscape. The organizers look forward to another beautiful season and express their gratitude to the community for their support.
