Battlefield Park Gets Butterfly Gardens

Battlefield park sits on the corner of HWY 80 and University Blvd. and is one of the largest parks in the city. The park features play areas for children, a community center, and several green spaces. Most recently, Keep Jackson Beautiful, built two butterfly gardens in the park.

The butterfly gardens were created to attract butterflies to the area and give them a place to feed. Butterflies feed on the nectar of flowers and there are several flowers in these two gardens.

In the upcoming weeks Marsha Hobson with Keep Jackson Beautiful will go back and plant some seaweed. This will attract more butterflies to the site.
