The public is invited to a ribbon cutting celebration on Monday, September 21 at 11 a.m. for the Music Garden at Bob Noble Park. This interactive playground is located on the west side of Lake Montgomery. Attendees are asked to wear facial coverings and maintain social distancing during the celebration.
This musical playground is the result of a public-private partnership. The City of Paducah prepared the concrete base and installed the outdoor musical instruments. Seven garden clubs of Paducah and several private donors raised more than $30,000 to purchase the instruments including drums and chimes that inspire musical joy for all ages.
The garden clubs that provided funding toward this project are El Arbol Garden Club, Fleur de Lis Garden Club, Four Seasons Garden Club, LaPetite Fleur Garden Club, Paducah Garden Club, Prestwick Garden Club, and Potting Shed Garden Club.
Private donations were received from the following generous members of the community: Molly and Lars Blythe; Shelia and Den Johnston; Susan and Jeff Golightly; Teddy Fiorita Day; Christy and Mark Meisenheimer; Janice and Craig Housman; Jennifer and Gary Gay; Sandy and Dwight Swann; Brenda and Brad McElroy; Patricia and Lynn Habacker; Debbie and Ted Davies; Sharon and Lee Powell; and Jeane Framptom.
All of the instruments have been installed, and the Music Garden is open to the public.
