Community Garden Plots @ Commissioners Park

Garden Plots will be available and ready for planting as of  Wednesday, May 1.

The Garden Plot Program is an opportunity for individuals to be part of a community gardening program. Residents and non-residents participating in the program enjoy nature, plant flowers, grow fruits and vegetables for food, and get exercise from the practice of gardening. Approximately 40 garden plots are available to rent on a first come first served (one plot per family) basis.

Plots measure 20 x 20 feet.
The Garden Plots are located at Commissioners Park, 22108 S. 80th Ave.
The Garden Plot season is from May 1 – October 31. (Weather Permitting)

The Garden Plot Manual will be available at the Founders Community Center and on the Park Districts web-site:  The rules and guidelines within this manual ensure that all participating gardeners have the opportunity for a positive gardening experience, that garden plot sites are a positive asset to the community and that all plots are used in a productive manner. By following the rules and guidelines, gardeners show that they want the garden plot program to be an important aspect in the community. All gardeners must agree to follow the rules and guidelines of the Garden Plot Program.
