Aug. 14, 2012 - Parks and Recreation Department's annual tulip bulb giveaway this Friday
The City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department’s annual tulip bulb giveaway will be held at 10 a.m. this Friday, Aug. 17 on the 1300 block of the Pearl Street Mall (in front of the Boulder County Courthouse). There will be 300 to 400 bags of tulip bulbs available.
Parks and Recreation staff changes the variety and color of the tulips planted on the Pearl Street Mall every year to provide a unique and impressive display each spring. Each fall, staff plant about 15,000 new tulip bulbs. After the bloom, staff removes the bulbs to make way for summer plantings, storing them until the annual tulip bulb give-away each August. Pearl Street Mall tulips are imported directly from Holland from a wholesale provider. A small donation will be requested for each bag.
For more information, call Parks and Recreation at 303-413-7200.
