Celebrating Earth Month at Waterloo Park

Thank you to all who participated in our first-ever Waterloo Green Days!

Our week-long series of free Earth Month activities kicked off on April 16 and featured a variety of interactive outdoor exhibits, sustainability and stewardship workshops, and live music and dance performances at Waterloo Park.

The celebration continued at Green Fest this past Sunday, where visitors discovered more than 20 community exhibitors, participated in guided garden tours, and enjoyed boisterous outdoor performances of Squonk‘s Hand to Hand on the Love, Tito’s Lawn at Moody Amphitheater.

Earth Month is still in full swing and we encourage you to visit Waterloo Park and take part in our self-guided experiences!

  • Use our Plant Wayfinder QR codes to learn more about the native plants in the 11-acre greenspace.
