Local Gardening Brings Community Together

About the Gardens

The community gardens at Keyser Park and Galt Park offer fertile land where residents may come together to till the earth so that families may enjoy healthy and local produce throughout the summer and fall months.

Keyser Park plots are organized by the Cuyahoga Falls Community Gardens, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The garden is divided into 25' x 25' sections and water spigots are spread throughout the garden for your convenience.

Galt Park plots are organized by the Parks and Recreation Department.  The garden is divided into 15' x 15' sections and have two rain barrels at the lodge for your watering convenience.
