Yacht Basin Park gazebo to get mosaic facelift

Local artist receives TCF grant

Thanks to a grant awarded last November by The Community Foundation, local art teacher Kate Garcia Rouh will be able to continue the beautification and maintenance efforts of a small Avondale park, affectionately known as “Mom’s Park”. Rouh and her husband Ken have been taking care of the park for four years, building arbors, planting many flowering plants, and trimming trees and bushes.

After painting over a graffiti-covered gazebo, the Rouhs came up with the idea to cover the floor and walls with mosaic tiles. Now Riverside/Avondale residents are being given an opportunity to help with the project, mortaring tiles into the bird-and-landscape design. The Rouhs can typically be found at the park most Saturdays and Sunday afternoons, but you can also contact Kate Rouh at (904) 465-4591.
